My whole life I have been plagued with a horrible memory, made worse from drug use. So my question is, does anyone have anyways to help them remember things for a long period of time.

I can usually remember things that are important to me or come up on a regular basis, but if I'm studying something that isn't normally used on a day to day basis, it's gone in a couple days.

Help?

Perhaps a constant study routine would help dude. To make study a regular basis, so to say.

If I try to remember something I usually question myself, and try to link it with all the other material that is relative to what I'm learning. Seems to help a bit.

I take notes from what I'm reading. That reminds me, I should be revising. Stupid study leave during the hottest week of the year

I study everyday, because it's for personal interest. I'm not in school at the moment.

Write down some key notes, copy them. Cover them up and write them from memory and repeat. Repeat, repeat. Then do the same for other notes. However, when writing them up the second time from memory, write the first ones up from memory as well. Again, repeat and continue the process with all you notes.

I have managed to remember an entire A4 sheet of writing in one night that way.

Sounds like a damn good idea, thanks man/woman.

Oh rightio. Well if your still having problems exercise can be a good thing. Go for a run.

Excercise can help if you do it just after learning something, unlike if you were going to go straight onto the computer or watching tv.

Apparently it also helps if you learn things right before you go to sleep, or once you've just woken up.

I used to write out my lecture notes on top of the usual working through tutorial questions and worked examples, it's a bit time consuming so not something you'd do the night before an exam. The evening before the exam I would write out headings and talk through what I knew about each topic
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

Depending on what you're studying, my advice (from experience, I got through my last year at school with a quarter of the average study time of most of my classmates, and got the same grades), is to memorise concepts, not words. Don't spend ages repeating "blah blah is blah blah and blah blah mixed together with blah blah and on a pointy stick", but try and learn the actual core information.
