The 100 List, Complete

Improve memory with detailed study techniques

Here’s the full memory list, all 100 characters, from 00 to 99. We’ve worked through each 10- character section, now we can work on memorising the whole thing, every detail of this, one of the most useful of all memory techniques.

A reference for your memory list

Having this memory list at your command will provide you with all you need to master your memory. And this is a better reference than flicking from page to page to check certain characters, or to revise them. You can see each and every character of your new memory list right here, on the one page, together. Spend some time mastering this memory technique, and take every opportunity to make it one of your most trusted study techniques, in regular use.

Of course, you can use this memory list or come up with one of your own, it’s your choice. If you choose your own characters, your memory list will be more personal to you, but it’s entirely up to you. Use what works for you, that’s always the way when you’re working with memory techniques … be selective: use what works and ditch the rest!

Make your memory techniques come alive!

Remember, whether you use these characters or your own, you really do have to breathe life into them by using your imagination. To make your memorisation work effectively, see these characters moving, animated, doing things, with exaggerated expressions on their faces, and hear their voices. If you pay attention to all these little details it will make them much more real to you, and consequently they’ll stick in your memory.

Even when you’re visualising them as separate individuals, this is important. Then, when they start to interact with each other and ‘borrow’ each other’s unique actions, it won’t be difficult to see them ‘performing’. It will be the most natural thing in the world, because they will have almost become real people to you, and they will start to act in entirely natural ways. Even if what they’re doing is completely nonsensical!

Improve memory with an eye for detail

If you really want to improve memory and create some effective study techniques, don’t rush through this and give it only half your attention. Go over this list and really learn it in detail. Make these study techniques your own by adding lots of creative details.

As you come to each character on the memory list, close your eyes and ‘see’ the character in your mind’s eye. Spend about ten seconds just drinking in all the detail, just as though the character was there, physically, in front of you. This is the kind of approach that will raise this from just being a memory technique or a study technique to something much more – it will become a valuable addition to your mental toolkit, and something that will serve you well for years to come.
