I’ve been trying out an additional technique to assist memorizing and have found it quite helpful so far. In the past simply reading a number of times from the text and then covering it to test my retention has not always been successful. Writing out the text by hand seems to help, but the technique outlined in How to Memorize Verbatim Text has been speeding up the process, and I think aiding effective retention. I’ve tried it so far with some catechism material, but I’m hoping to progress to Scripture memory. I can’t see why it wouldn’t work with any material.
