Many of the members have posted great acrynomas and pneumonic devices to help memorize imporant concepts or processes. I have found that when I make something relate to my personel life, it's easier to remember cause it has to do with me specifcally, and not something that's made up. For instance, I was trying to remember the 9x boot process, so i listed the order down the page and took the first letter from each step. IO.SYS, MSDOSSYS, CONFIG.SYS, COMMAND.COM, AND AUTOEXEC.BAT. Theres been a girl I liked for a few years now, who I have always had a hot and cold relationship with and who I always seem to tick off one way or another. Her first name is Corinne and her last name starts with a C, so I used her name to help me remember the process. The boot process became I M
orinne C A
ngry, Which is the same first letters as I
OMMAND.COM, AND A
UTOEXEC.BAT. Another example is how I used her name to remember the printing process for hardware. She watched me play basketball when I was in high school a few years ago, so I remembered the printing process as C
orinne C W
So, what Im trying to show and say, is that if you make a pnemonic devices personal, you're more likely to remember it as opposed to something you just made up because it has the same first letters as the process you're trying to memorize. If you incorporate actual friends,family, or events into your studying, you will find it much easier to remember most things
