Ways to Remember...

Postby DanielFullard » Tue Jan 24, 2012 11:15 am

Through trawling the many quiz blogs and sites I read I always come across little titibits of information and ways to remember things along the lines of -


Kent Play Cricket on Fridays - Girls Spectate as a way to remember biological classification for instance.

I used to use such methods all the time at Uni and every essay I wrote for an exam was based on such a memory structure.

Does anybody have any other good ones to share or any sites they know of with plenty on? I know its easy to make up your own but I tend to remember them better if I dont

Quite often I find it almost as hard to remember the mnemonic as the facts it's supposed to help me recall. It's much better when the reminder has some relevance to the subject matter... so, here's one I devised myself for the countries on the Isthmus between the USA (N America) and Columbia (South) and, what is more, runs in the correct order from North to South.

My (Mexico)
Great (Guatemala)
Big (Belize)
Enchilada (El Salvador)
Has (Honduras)
No (Nicaragua)
Chilli (Costa Rica)
Peppers (Panama)

I only have to think "Mexican food" to kick-me-off on the mnemonic...

And I have referred to this in a quiz myself (to dig-out an answer) and I told it to someone recently who then was able to give an answer in a quiz ("Which country borders x and y?") thanks to his remembering it!

I prefer Kinky People Can Often Find Good Sex.

Not mine - found it on the interweb a few years back!
