Remembering more

I had my test recently. There were many questions.

After the test, I went back and try to type out as many questions that appear on the test into a Microsoft Word document for my own keeping.

After thinking and recalling, I managed to wrote down about 80% of what is in the test.

This is not because I had super memory, but I have a structure in my mind of the concepts that I build on and I know where to find it in my mind.

This is as written in the book, Talent is overrated, superior memory may exist, but talent is overrated, what chess masters does is not superior memory, they had a structure in their mind that can made them recall the chess positions on a board blind folded, but when the chess positions are random, they can hardly recall more than average chess players.

So much for having a “bad memory” and quitting pharmacy school.
