This is a great book - not just for students but for anyone wanting to improve their memory, mental organisation and recall skills.
The journey and loci aspects are the strongest points but I was already familiar with these. I was initially disappointed because I thought that some of the great ideas in this have been ripped off by other authors but on reflection perhaps none of these techniques can be claimed to be "owned" by any one person. I tried the master number memory system for a while but found memorising numbers this way too time-consuming. I'm hoping the PAO (person action object) approach will work better for me. Overall I prefer the approach of Oddbjorn By in "Memo" for memorising sets of dates but I found the last chapter of this book very clever and useful for smarter mathematical shortcuts.
