How many times have you had a thought or an answer "on the tip of your tongue" but couldn't quite remember what you were going to say? Forgetfulness is a common mishap felt my most people beginning at an early age and, according to new research, is a result of stress and pressure to recall information rapidly, as is often required in school and work settings. How many times have you been in an important meeting or exam and been unable to recall the necessary information needed to succeed? What if it was possible to exercise your mind in order to control access to your subconscious -- the part of your brain where memory resides?

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, some experts suggest that challenging the brain with such activities as reading, writing, learning a new skill, playing games, and gardening stimulates brain cells and the connections between the cells and may be associated with a lower risk of forgetfulness as you age. If you frequently find yourself forgetting simple thoughts and tasks or want to learn tricks to help you retain information as you are studying, this book will provide you with tips and strategies for increasing cognitive function and boosting your memory.

Maximize Your Memory For Work and School will provide you with the tools necessary to understand why forgetfulness occurs and determine whether your forgetfulness might be due to a more alarming medical problem. You will discover the major categories of memory, including short-term memory, mid-term memory, and long-term memory and how visualizations, sounds, and even smells can be associated with different memories, allowing you to remember events and concepts perfectly. You will master techniques and exercises for remembering important information, no matter the setting. Learn how to use mnemonic devices and rhymes to remember sayings, important dates, rules of thumb, and concepts quickly. Perform puzzles, tests of creativity and problem-solving skills, memory exercises, and mind agility and intelligence tests in this book to improve your ability to remember information rapidly.

Studying for exams and tests that may impact your future can put an enormous amount of pressure on a student's mind and emotions.

You will grasp an effective method for studying and retaining information, increase memorization capacity and reading speed, improve study habits, and rapidly recall information needed to excel.
