'Mnemonic'is another word for memory tool. Mnemonics are techniques for remembering information that is otherwise quite difficult to recall. The idea behind using mnemonics is to encode difficult-to-remember information in a way that is much easier to remember. Our brains evolved to code and interpret complex stimuli such as images, colors, structures, sounds, smells, tastes, touch, positions, emotions and language. We use these to make sophisticated models of the world we live in. Our memories store all of these very effectively.
Unfortunately, a lot of the information we have to remember in modern life is presented differently- as words printed on a page.
While writing is a rich and sophisticated medium for conveying complex arguments, our brains do not easily encode written information, making it difficult to remember.We believe that we have a limited memory and can store only a certain amount of data and that those who are doing better are exceptionally gifted people or are born geniuses. Truth is, they are using more than one faculty to memorize things whilst we may be using just one. The capacity of human brain in terms of computer storage is 2 Quintillion bits or in other words 200 Crore Giga Bytes. Simply put, if our brain were a video recorder recording every video and sound, then for the memory to be completely full, the video camera would have to run for 300 years.
MNEMONICS COURSE:Eligibility 5 to 99 years

Improves grades & marks
The problem is not with the memory. The problem is with the storage system, or the indexing system of the brain which we hardly ever train. Although the information is very much there, due to our negligence of not labeling it properly before storing, we are not able to recall.
With the help of Mnemonics as a tool, the students who have to memorize large amounts of data, long answers, formulae, history dates just to name a few. The recall time using the technique of Mnemonics is reduced by half hence leaving the student a lot of time to cover extra topics and prepare additional things for the same exam.
