Cisco Memory Extensions to Mega Memory

You must have studied this book to proceed:
Mega Memory by Kevin Trudeau


The best part of the memory system is how after committing something to memory, you are able to recall it without invoking the silly and sometimes convoluted imagery you used to remember it.  The memory system is a little cumbersome when you are a novice, but with practice your mind will begin to sub consciously do the work for you.  Many people mistakenly think that you will have to spend the rest of your life creating memorable imagery, but when you become a journeyman memory practitioner you learn that it "just happens".

Memory Tip Of The Week:

ARP is RFC 826

"A HARP gets smashed by a COMET, VANISH (826)"
