      • Always Avoid Rude cows-Acronym, Acrostic, Rhymes and Chunking
      • Acronym-word/sentence formed from initial letters of other words
      • Acrostic-poem/sentence when the first letter in each word forms the item to be remembered
      • Rhymes-groups of words with an identity and rhythm
      • Chunking-dividing a long string of information into memorable chunks
    • Visual imagery
      • Method of loci-associate parts of the material to be recalled with different places in the order they are to be recalled
      • Spider diagrams/mind maps-making notes of information in the form of a drawing
      • Key word method-a keyword that helps to conjure a visual image to trigger recall
