These vocabulary lists appear for each group of letters, so you can practice on words that only use the letters you have learned. To make them easier to read (and also, beneficially, remember), the words are mostly cognate with English words. Thus you can not only practice your letters, but also pick up some few hundreds of words as well. Where the meaning of the words is less obvious, mnemonic keywords are provided.
The workbook includes:instruction on learning the individual lettersvisual and story mnemonics for learning the order of the alphabettargeted vocabulary listsfull glossary with word meanings and mnemonics where appropriate.

Maybe you're getting older. Maybe you're stressed, or chronically tired, or just overwhelmed. Whatever the reason, you're finding it harder to remember things that matter to you. The Memory Journal is designed to help you.
I've been writing about memory and learning skills for 25 years. I'm a great believer in practical strategies that don't ʻcostʼ too much — that is, you don't have to spend a lot of time and effort mastering them. This journal is one of those.
Your memory journal gives you a place to reflect on your day, and shape your memories (and thus, your story).
But this is not a diary. This is a memory journal, and it requires a very specific type of note-taking. I'll provide advice and examples to help you with this critical skill for both learning and everyday memory, but most of all, this journal will provide you with the opportunity to get the practice in this that you need, if you're serious in wanting to improve your memory.
Along the way, the journal also provides tips and advice, with a weekly focus, to help you:
* learn some basic strategies for remembering the things you want to remember
* set in place some good habits which will help protect your brain
* learn a little about your memory, how it works, what works for it, how good it is for different tasks, and how much help it needs for some tasks.
This book is a digital version of “My Memory Journal”. Using this, you can turn a blank notebook into your own memory journal. The book has all the text provided in “My Memory Journal”, including instructions on how to use it, examples, specialist pages, and all the tips and focal strategies for each week. The Journal covers 26 weeks.

There's a great deal that research can now tell us about how to study effectively. For 20 years, I've been reporting on research into memory and learning, and explaining how these findings can be translated into practical advice. In earlier books, I have presented a lot of detail on strategies in specific areas: note-taking, mnemonics, practice and revision. In this guide, I attempt to provide an overview of how to approach your learning, and the strategies you should consider using.
The book covers:
* preparing for learning
* approaching a text
* taking notes
* building understanding
* navigating non-linear environments
* dealing with lectures
* building expertise in skills
* how specific subjects differ in their needs & demands.
The book can be used as an adjunct and quick reference for those who have the more in-depth workbooks, or as a simplified guide for those who want the bottom-line without the detail.
This is not a book for students who want a magic bullet, who want a five-minute 'answer' to effortless study! But students who want to know that their time and effort are being used wisely, that their diligence will be rewarded with better marks and more long-lasting learning, this guide may be the answer they've long been looking for.
