    3.5 stars.I really liked the first chapter of this book, I found plenty of stuff that I could use as a teacher However, the rest of the book isn t as useful to me though some parts, especially the life saving chapter is very interesting One thing that really let me down is that most of these mnemonics are probably harder to remember than the thing you want to remember So the usefulness of most of them Is questionable in my opinion But it is an interesting and fun book if you are interes 3.5 stars.I really liked the first chapter of this book, I found plenty of stuff that I could use as a teacher However, the rest of the book isn t as useful to me though some parts, especially the life saving chapter is very interesting One thing that really let me down is that most of these mnemonics are probably harder to remember than the thing you want to remember So the usefulness of most of them Is questionable in my opinion But it is an interesting and fun book if you are interested

    I often wonder, What did we do before typewriters, computers, internet, google, etc This little book reminds me one who graduated from high school with none of the listed technology except access to a manual typewriter only in secretarial training class We relied on memory gimmicks to pass on knowledge by rote memory I bought this book so I carried it around to peruse when waiting for something or somebody It s fun to remember how things use to be I didn t read every page but it was amusi I often wonder, What did we do before typewriters, computers, internet, google, etc This little book reminds me one who graduated from high school with none of the listed technology except access to a manual typewriter only in secretarial training class We relied on memory gimmicks to pass on knowledge by rote memory I bought this book so I carried it around to peruse when waiting for something or somebody It s fun to remember how things use to be I didn t read every page but it was amusing though probably not as useful today with the current technology

    Really good reference book to own, great for students and infojunkies alike If the TAFE Library ever CANCELs this book, I want to grab it Had so many Mnemonics, I wish there was an audio version where it s on repeat and brainwashes you to remember them Pretty much the only one I remember is from music class in years 4 to 6 recorder of all things, ugh is the music notes or scale I read that a few months ago and obviously forgot already is EGBDF, Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit I really oug Really good reference book to own, great for students and infojunkies alike If the TAFE Library ever CANCELs this book, I want to grab it Had so many Mnemonics, I wish there was an audio version where it s on repeat and brainwashes you to remember them Pretty much the only one I remember is from music class in years 4 to 6 recorder of all things, ugh is the music notes or scale I read that a few months ago and obviously forgot already is EGBDF, Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit I really ought to get copies of these types of Reference genre books, they re not something you loan and just read once, you need to own them and refer to them often If anyone knows of audio recordings of Mnemonics let me know I can play them on repeat, it s how I finally managed to master the 7s in the time tables after a week or so with the tapes from my older sister I listened to in bed before falling asleep

    A book of mostly mnemonics.The problem I have always had with mnemonics is not remembering the mnemonic but failing to remember what each letter stands for If I had been taught this way then I would have taken in very little some might argue I have anyway I am sure that it is a useful book for many to have and to refer to It won t help everyone It is a quick read if read in one session I appreciate the thought behind the book and it has some good information.

    Cute and fun, but generally rather useless Mnemonics were at times a bit convoluted and difficult, and topics ranged between the alphabet, numbers, the Seven Hills of Rome, digits of pi, and many other things I will never need to know But maybe that s my perhaps lacking modern education and attitude taking over.

    This is almost entirely a list of mnemonics along the lines of Can Queen Victoria Eat Cold Apple Pie this is supposed to help me remember the names of the hills of Rome, but in reality it is just an extra thing to try to take in If this is what old school was like, then there is a reason it is old school and not just school.
