    I find that memorizing things without understanding can be useful for short term memory only.

    How do you manage to memorize without understanding? What do you do, just read repeatedly?

    In order to learn information we should understand it to be able to recall it and adapt it to the situation and clinical cases. So I try to read and take notes. Mnemonics are also a very useful (and fun) way to learn. I try to find videos and illustrations to help me understand what I’m reading.

    I find it that we are slammed with so much material in a short period of time that we don’t really have time to watch videos. Most of the videos I do find online tend to drag on and be very long. I find that videos do help me however time is limited.

    (I have a friend who can only study when she moves and walks. Her memorization skills are proportional to her movement speed. It can be very distracting for us, but it works really well for her ! ;) )

    I will defiantly have to try walking and studying, I always tend to walk around and talk on the phone =D might be a sign.
