The Phonetic Mnemonic System can be used to remember times as well as dates. Suppose that you have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday at 9:00am. Wednesday is the 3rd day of the week, so 3 and 9 make the word 'mop.' Create a visualization of your doctor with a mop, and you will be able to remember your appointment. Here are a few more times to help you practice:
Sunday 2:00 = 7 2 = can
Monday 8:30 = 1 83 = dove ham
Tuesday 4:39 = 2 439 = honey ramp
Thursday 3:00 = ? (Try this one yourself!)
