Notes from The Buzan Study Skills Handbook

Here are my notes from book "The Buzan Study Skills Handbook" by Tony Buzan in a form of mindmap because this is what he actually teaches in this book.


Pretty interesting thoughts or a manual to our memory and how to use it better or more naturally. Recalling something or not starts with recognizing and sorting out information and attaching it to what we already know to us. The more alive, more vivid the easier is to remember. Repeating memorized after 1 hour, 1 week, 1 month, 6 months and one year will transcript the information to our permanent memory where we can attach more memories. The more we remember, the more we can remember, our brain has nearly endless capacity. Time is the limit here, not the volume. Speed reading also sounds interesting - the faster we read the more brain has to pay attention and keep away the distractions. And well we think in pictures as the author claims.

Sounds all fair and makes me dream of a new/different/better way how to study. But will I find time to implement it?
