Memorization requires time and practice. If you don't put in the work you won't be successful. Repetition and drilling, using flashcards, is a popular strategy. Try writing out or drawing out the answers before turning the card over to review them. Create mnemonic devices - clever phrases, sentences, or words to help you remember words and an order for them.

Reading something over and over helps to memorize it. Also, whenever you want to remember something always write it down. For some reason that seems to put it into your memory bank better. Then another way is to read out loud what you want to memorize. That helps you "see it" and remember it.

First, pair what you have to remember with something that has meaning for you. Second, study for a short time and put the work aside to try again later.

Rewrite your notes after the class in an outline format that is easily understandable. Go back and review the content with images and diagrams that might help you remember it.
