Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Improving Your Memory.
- Before you begin this course, I want you to know that your memory is not some fixed capability that's either good or bad. Just like anything else that you practice, you can train yourself to have a better memory. It might feel like your memory isn't that great, but I want you to know that there's no such thing as a bad memory. There are only trained and untrained memories. If you know certain techniques, like the ones will cover in this course, you can train yourself to have a better memory with practice. So I encourage you to take active part in each exercise. There will be points where I might ask you to pause the video, in order to practice something on your own.
If you're serious about improving your memory, you should take part in these exercises. I think you'll find them not only to be useful but also pretty fun. I've also included exercise files for all lynda.com members that will give you more information and resources as you follow along. So with that, let's go ahead and begin.

- Taking notes
- Using songs and rhyming techniques to remember details
