Foreword from Ron Fry, Author of Improve Your Memory

If it weren't for the fact that reading is the absolute underpinning of every other study skill, I could make a pretty strong case that spending time improving your memory would deliver the most "study bang" for the buck. It doesn't matter how rapidly you whiz through your textbooks if five minutes later you can't even remember the subject you just studied. Getting organized is essential, but not too effective if you always forget to carry your calendar and regularly turn in homework assignments late. And, of course, spending hours searching high and low for keys, glasses, and other essentials isn't exactly the most efficient way to start your study day.

As important as they are, basic memory techniques are the study ingredients least likely to be taught in schools, even in a study skills course. So while the better schools and teachers might help you with reading, writing, organizing, and test strategies, far too many of them will "forget" to help you with your memory... or to help you find your glasses, keys, etc.

This small book will give you so many ways to remember more, you'll wonder why you didn't become a "memorist" years ago!

I am proud that I have been helping students of all ages improve their study skills ever since the day I walked into a bookstore and realized there was no single book then available that simply taught someone how to study! This year marks another major milestone in the more than 20-year-long evolution of my How To Study Program. My readers are far more varied than I ever expected--from middle and high school students to college students to returning students. The books in the How To Study Program are meant to address all of these readers and their common problem. I have attempted to create a system that is usable, useful, practical, learnable, flexible, and adaptable--one that you can use, whatever your age or level of achievement, to start doing better in school, in work, and in life immediately.

Good luck,

--Ron Fry
