Tricks to Increase your Memory : Remembering Dates

The Phonetic Mnemonic System can be used to remember dates. All you need to do is turn the date of the event into a word using the system and then associate that word with the event. For example, suppose that your friend's birthday is on January 21. This can be represented by 1-21 or with the phonetic word 'tent.' If you visualize your friend having a birthday party inside a tent, then you will be able to remember the date.

Here are some more examples of turning dates into memorable words or phrases.

Columbus discovered America in 1492 (turban)
Albert Einstein published the Theory of Relativity in 1905 (topsoil)
World War II ended on Sept 2, 1945 or 9/2/45 (piano rail) .

Try it out it will work for you..
