Not all of us are blessed with a photographic memory! As a student, I tried all my ‘superpowers’ to stare at books with the highest level of concentration; hoping to imprint the information on the canvas of my mind, but it clearly didn’t seem to help! I ultimately would need to resort to something more realistic (but obvious!). It was then that Mnemonics; the memory-tickling phrases and acronyms would come to my rescue! These were the clever tricks which often released me from the pressure of retaining a lot of information.
