Personally I found the Memory Pretest an efficient tool for evaluating how well I remember things. It's a really good place to start if you don't how to improve your remembering skills. The pretest assesses you out of a scale of 1 to 10,10 being the best. Questions like "I know that learning and remembering take work, and I'm willing to put out the effort that's required" are asked to the user to assess accurately how well you remember things.

This Memory Pretest was helpful I found out I could use more effective ways to study and remember. Also I agree because I only have one way of remember things that are important to me.
Great way to hone in on it.

What a great pretest on how you study. It made me feel like my memory is better than it is. Knowing what I have read and what your info tells me I know what my weaknesses are and how to try and improve on them!
Memory--it's in you
I like the directness of this site. Tools found on it are extremely straight forward and to the point. I clearly see the memory process in action put in a very common sense fashion. I understand and understood why military training was presented in the way it was, just didn't realize at the time. I knew that it was happening just never pondered the … “I know the goal that is achieved, but the how and why eluded me” As to how it can be implemented in so many other facets of life was clearly perceived.

It is short sweet and to the point! I love that this site has gotten it's point across through a fun quiz to see how well we can try and remember and learn. Maybe add a few more specific questions to better understand the individual.

This test was a good balance of simple and quick and still giving an in-depth analysis of how memory works and how an individual can improve. The site starts with a page that gives a basic ten question test that asks questions of how an individual uses memory tactics and to what extent. The page leads to two others, one that tells how well I did on the test and where to improve, and the other page goes over how memory works and the information processing model. I personally was able to score at leas five on every question for a total of 75 out of 100 possible points. The test pointed out areas that I should improve and what tactics and strategies to use. The information processing model was also a meat addition to further solidify how these strategies work within the brain\'s processing. The test was an overall great experience being informative yet not overdone or too long.
