Posted on: April 6, 2007

If you’ve ever struggled to memorize information for a test, here is a quick hack to help you remember things more easily:

How to Study.com suggests:

Forming an acronym is a good strategy to use to remember information in any order that can be remembered. An acronym is a word that is formed from the first letter of each fact to be remembered. It can be a real word or a nonsense word you are able to pronounce.

Here is how to form an acronym.

  • Write the facts you need to remember.
  • Underline the first letter of each fact. If there is more than one word in a fact, underline the first letter of only.
  • Arrange the underlined letters to form an acronym that is a real word or a nonsense word you can pronounce.

For example:
“HOMES” is an example of an acronym that is a real word you can use to remember the names of the five Great Lakes: Michigan, Erie, Superior, Ontario, Huron: In HOMES, H is the first letter of Huron and helps you remember that name; O is the first letter of Ontario, and so on.
