The key is to coding information using vivid mental images. This approach allows both information and the structure of information to be coded. Vivid images are easier to recall when you need them.
Following techniques below illustrates how to code information vividly, using stories, strong mental images, familiar journeys, etc.
You can do the following things to make your mnemonics more memorable:
Most people have a real problem in that they have an under developed ability to focus and concentrate their attention to learn and retain large quantities of data. Study suggestions include: to verbalize; underline/high light of important information; and study groups. Cramming and memorizing at the last minute for a test generally results in quickly forgetting the materials.
Mnemonic is a memory tool for remembering information that is otherwise quite difficult to recall. The concept involves the use of a code to retrieve important information about what is otherwise difficult to remember.
In today's society that is increasingly concerned with security, remembering different passwords for each list is extremely difficult. If we use the computer to store these passwords, we are vulnerable to having it "hacked" and all of our private information, including passwords, can be stolen.
There are three basic
principles that underlay the use of mnemonics:
Imagination: - create and strengthen the associations with the information you wish to recall. These associations can be universal or highly personal. The strength of the image and your ability to visualize it determines the mind's effectiveness to recall at some future time. Try using your initial impression to create the imagery you use, in your mnemonics, as you are much more likely to remember it.
Association: this is the method by which you link a thing to be remembered to a way of remembering it. You can create associations by:
Location: assigning a specific location allows you to use the same coherent context by storing different data as different location or situations that you can easily keep separate with no danger becoming confused. You need to personalize these locations into your mnemonics to strengthen your ability to keep the data separate.Recommended Reading:

The Physics of Kayak Stroking June 10, 2001. Though Newton's Laws explain the basic concept of how a kayaker is able to propel himself forward, there is a lot more going on. Including torque. Torque is the reason why the kayak swings in the opposite direction of each stroke. If a stroke is done on the right side, the kayak rotates counter-clockwise, but if the stroke is done on the left, the kayak rotates clockwise. This is because that while a stroke is taking place the paddle acts as a lever arm for the vessel.
