Asked by William

What is the best way to remember specific dates etc.. without making pneumonics?

Try flash cards or relating a certain part of the date to the key event you're trying to remember. Additionally repetition is invaluable - keep rewriting what you remember on a blank piece of paper and mark this against a master copy with all the answers. It'll soon become mechanical to associate the dates and events/data in question.

Mnemonics often work for a lot of people but not for everyone. I would suggest making a table with 2 columns, dates on one side and the event on the other and either keep reading it or redo it like a 'look-cover-check' activity. Hope that helps.
