For an example if you have to memorize a verse for a class, the best way to memorize it is to say it outloud many times to yourself because then your brain will remember that verse. After saying the verse outloud to yourself, try to say it to yourself without looking at the verse. Did it work? Look on the Learning Style page to see what type of learner you are.
