I NAILED MY EXAM!! Now a bachelor in medicine (and surgery)! 🙏😁🎉🎊 And here are 5 tips and tricks on how to memorize better as promised! These tips and tricks is for everyone in whichever field you’re in and do not apply to the medical field alone. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 1️⃣ Sticky notes everywhere! Write the facts you need to memorize on sticky notes and stick them everything you look at daily. Mirror, bathroom, doors, kitchen, tv. Etc. And whenever you pass them, read them through. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 2️⃣ Mind mapping! I used this to memorize cycles and enzymes. You need a route you’re very familiar with. It could be a route around your house, or the route you take to class/work. Every step on the way is something you need to memorize. Example: 🔹I wake up in my bed. My room is “citrate” in the citrate cycle. 🔹I go out of my room through my door which is the enzyme “aconitase” that catalyses citrate into isocitrate. 🔹Isocitrate is the hallway I get to when I pass through my bedroom door. Etc. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 3️⃣rhymes! Make up rhymes for things. To memorize the carpal bones I used the mnemonic “some couples try positions that they can’t handle”. Make them up yourself or use existing ones. The more vulgar the easier you’ll memorize them. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 4️⃣Draw everything!! Even if it’s text, write the text and add arrows or other drawings. Your brain remembers pictures, and you’ll be able to explain the pictures with your own words. So practice drawing and explaining what you’re drawing orally. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 5️⃣ Do NOT change!! The most important tip I wanna give you guys, is actually to not change a method once you start, or else you’ll your brain will need to re-adjust and relearn. You can use several tricks for an entire subject though. So let’s say if you need to memorize the TCA cycle AND lipolysis, you can use sticky notes for one and mind mapping for the other. But don’t change a method once you start. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ For more tips and tricks watch my highlight called “study tips” ☺️ I hope this can offer you some inspiration and help you to memorize better!
