Fry, the author of other 'how to study' guides in this series, presents tried-and-true memory techniques that are rarely taught in schools (e.g., the chain-link system for associated things). He clearly covers remembering numbers, dates, names and faces as well as text, vocabulary, and spelling. A chapter is devoted to tips for those with attention deficit disorder. The guide includes self-tests. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
