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.

Being a successful student is far more about being a smart user of effective strategies than about being 'smart'. In fact it is possible to predict how well a student will do simply on the basis of their use of study strategies.
Mnemonics is one class of study strategy that is of proven effectiveness, but (like only too many effective strategies!) is used far too little. Despite many studies showing the effectiveness of mnemonic strategies, they remain the least frequently used formal memory aid used by students.
Perhaps the main reason for this is that their effectiveness is not intuitively obvious — truly, no one really believes that these 'tricks' can so remarkably improve memory until they try them for themselves.
But while mnemonics do not help you understand your material, they do help you remember those many details you need to achieve expertise in a topic — details such as the names of things, technical words, lists of principles.
Moreover, mnemonics can help you remember tags or labels that allow you to access clusters of meaningful information — for example, headings of a speech or main points for exam essays. For both these reasons, mnemonics are a valuable assistance to building up expertise in a subject, as well as in helping you 'cram' for an exam.

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.
