Memorization via ‘Stacking’


I found a unique idea for memorizing bulk text. The author claims that a student memorized *all* seven chapters of a text, and aced the course’s introductory exam. Whether or not this is inherent talent for memorization, it remains to be seen.

The main tool the student used to memorize his material is what the author calls ‘stacking’. You essentially write down sentences you would like to memorize, and recite them out loud repeatedly, adding one more sentence to the mix every time. The author also suggests you take a short nap to allow your brain to further process the material, and then repeat the exercise again after you wake up.
