Have you Tried Teaching Others?
I know people that when they are ready for an exam, they don’t want to teach anyone anything they’ve learned. They have no idea that teachers of things teach themselves too and become masters at doing those things. So it would be great if you teach others what you have learned.
You can Create Mental Associations
Making connections is a very simple way to remember different information. This is also the fuel to intelligence and creativity. Steve Jobs said Creativity refers to the connection between different things. Whenever you ask creative people how this was done, they would feel quite guilty because they did not create the entire thing. They just saw something and merged them.
You could make use of Mind maps to connect different ideas using an overview of various connections.
