Earlier we discussed the Link System for remembering lists. This is an extremely effective mnemonic system. Let's practice with this list of 20 words. You may think that it's impossible, in only a few minutes, to memorize a list of 20 words in order, but it's actually quite easy. In an earlier practice we gave you some sample visualizations to make, but it's actual more effective if you make your own, so we're going to leave you alone this time. Using the link system, spend at least 3 minutes visualizing these objects and you should have no problem remembering them.

List:
Drums, Teeth, Belt, Rocket, Sports Car, Tennis Ball, Scissors, Pipe, Nail, Grass, Turtle, Wedding Ring, Earth, Dust, Bed, Plate, Candy, Light Bulb, Business Card, Computer

Now close your eyes and try to recall the entire list. See how easy it was? To prove the effectiveness of this technique, make up a different list and try to memorize it without using the link system. Do you see how hard it is without the link system?
