Sometimes when you are studying, you might encounter a sequence of stuff to memorise. Such as a few elements, a few people, or any stuff that seems random and messed up. You might go: Woah, how am I going to remember this?
When that occurs, mnemonics can give you a helping hand. Not to mention they’re quite fun to make!
For example, the fractions of petroleum are:
- Petroleum gas
- Lubricating oil
- Fuel oil
So what you want to do is create a sentence (a nonsensical one), with the first letter of each word corresponding to the first letter of each item in the list.
I would put, say,
Poor Peter Never Kiss D Little Fat Baby
All you have to do is remember this sentence, so your mind can effortlessly relate and recall the list items. It works magically right? Give it a try!
For a start, create a mnemonic for your name, and post it as a comment below! And have fun too 🙂
