REFINE YOUR TECHNIQUE
After discussing the basics of memory techniques in "Getting Started," Alex introduces the ways you can refine your technique to learn more efficiently, including suggestions for brainstorming potential palaces, choosing strong loci, and converting information into images. Cathy and Alex (team #mullenmemory) put it all together by doing a real-life example in real time, showing how they each use these techniques to memorize the "acute pyelonephritis" section from the First Aid review book.
