One effective study skill tool I’ve used countless times during my education and career is a memory peg system.
This simple system has helped me remember thousands of lists under pressure: everything from world capitals, Jane Austen quotes, the battles of the Peloponnesian War, the events leading up to the Bolshevik Revolution, the elements of the tort of negligence, Hong Kong conveyancing requirements (!), the muscles of the face and neck, and even the different kinds of dysarthria.
In this video, I demonstrate the nuts and bolts of how to use a memory peg system to remember any 10 things in order and here’s a free visual. We hope you find them useful!
