"This, of course, brought down an avalanche of suppositions, flooded with the sapient arguments of the two officials, who sent back and forth to each other a wearisome flood of nonsense." --de Balzac, Honore
We're sorry to say that there is no "secret technique" or "quick fix" that will give you a miraculous memory. If you want to improve your memory ability, you are going to need to learn a variety of different techniques that you can apply to different situations. Just like you would pick a hammer (not a saw) to drive a nail, you'll need to pick the right memory tool for each memory task.
Some of the things that will affect which memory tool you choose are: How familiar with the topic are you? What are you trying to remember (names, facts, numbers, etc)? How specific does your memory need to be (concepts only, word-for-word)? How long do you need to remember this information?
We will present a tool for each situation, so if you practice our exercises, you will eventually have a complete tool chest of memory techniques.
