I started reading this book again just now and it's a pretty solid basic guide to how to start using your brain's potential more efficiently and effectively when it comes to (speed) reading, studying and memorizing.

There's plenty of exercises in there on how to practice speed reading as well as memorizing and studying techniques to store things you learn in your long-term memory; I definitely recommend checking it out if that's something you're at all interested in.

Also if anyone here knows any other great books on the subject, fire away, cause this is actually one of the first I read so I can't really compare.

I haven't read many books on that subject just yet, but I've read a lot of articles and whatnot. Here are the two things I have to share.

For speed reading stuff online I use this: http://zapreader.com/

It's awesome AND free. Anytime I run into a large chunk of text that I want to read, I use it.

The second thing is this website (and software): http://supermemo.com/

There are a ton of articles on that site about memory and how to get better and more efficient at memorizing stuff. I've read them all (but can't tell you how many I remember).

I also used the Palm version of the software to learn to speak and read Mandarin Chinese (like... I REALLY did). I took classes and stuff as well, but this helped more than anything else. I'm looking forward to remastering the software for Chinese and other languages in the future. :)

Seriously, awesome to see you here again once in a while, man! How've you been?

One friend often recommended me books of Edward de Bono, who write something like Buzan.

 

I read about mindmaps invented by Buzan, and 6 thinking hats by Bono. Don't impressed. May be, I must get more practise, don't know.

 

The problem with mindmaps is that thay is just ordinary mathematical tree. Tree is better structure than linear list, but Buzan overestimates it. But it is good in generating expainding branches of ideas throught assotiations.

Man i was just serchin for it , thanks !!!! <3

i did read somthing on that topic, but i dont rly remember the title of the book.. besides it was written in danish so..

anyway its very interesting, i did try out some of the memmorizing techniques and they do really help ;)

 

specially the one called memmory castle.. or somthing in that order..

also learned a bunch of fun facts about what our brains are capable off.

like we lose 20k neurons every day, yet our brain is capable to remmember every second of our life, if trained properly ( well in theory anyway).

 

btw, jsut googled it... actually it was that book that u were reading rofl

:P
