Stronger Verbal Memory (Bb)

If you have stronger verbal memory and you want to boost learning efficiency

What It Is

Your verbal memory refers to remembering what you read or hear. You might easily remember class discussions, science facts or vocabulary. You might recognize it requires more effort to remember visual information like formulas, charts, patterns and pictures.

Using Your Stronger Verbal Memory

  1. Remember visual information, such as pictures or graphs, by describing it in your own words. You can do this in your head, but it is even more effective if you speak or write what you want to remember.
  2. Be as specific as possible in your descriptions. For example, you might say an equilateral triangle has three equal angles and three equal sides to ensure you retain more details.
  3. If you are having a difficult time understanding a topic, try to memorize extra information, even if the teacher does not require it. The more you memorize, the easier it will be to answer tricky questions or solve complex problems.
