Mammoth Memory

How we Learn


You can cram using the Mammoth Method, but it's a risk!

Our method will certainly help to make the material you are learning more memorable. However, it is not designed to work after just one sitting. To retain information permanently, it must be continually reviewed. Your mind needs time to allow it to sink in. If you don’t revisit the ideas or definitions you’re trying to remember on a regular basis, you’ll almost certainly forget them.

This is because retriggering the memory of the information you’re revising will help to transfer it from your temporary short term memory to your more permanent long term memory.

If possible, use Mammoth Memory during short, regular study sessions spread throughout the year rather than cramming the night before an exam. The gaps between these periods of revision should gradually get greater:


  • Learn it today
  • Revise it tomorrow
  • Revisit it in a week
  • Return to it in a month
  • Review it in six months


Your Mammoth Memory of the information should then be permanent.

When you return to your revision, you will be reactivating the memory of, for example, a lead pencil in a jar of peanut butter (to remember that the chemical symbol for lead is Pb).
Whilst we recommend you start your revision early, if you do find yourself in a panic the night before, the impact of our imagery will enable you to quickly absorb any facts or concepts.
