Hi!

 

I just want to share a website I made back in 2014 when I was studying Mnemonica (for the second time). Here it is: https://bezhermoso.github.io/mnemonica/

It allows you to go through the stack for practice, or quickly look up a card in position (or vice-versa). It also have 3 quiz modes: value, card, or both. It is pretty basic, but I found it handy when I wanted to train when I don't have a deck with me but have a smartphone handy (yes, it's "mobile-friendly" as we'd like to call it in tech. Just swipe!).

 

I know there are mobile apps out there already. However I didn't find them to my liking so I made this. I'm not claiming this is better, just a different form that I made that works for me. Maybe it works for you, too.

 

I am actually currently working on upgrading it now that I have some free time. If you like it and would like to see a feature, let me know and I'll see if I can work it in! Right now, current list of features is improving the overall design, making it more usable on mobile phones (it needs improvements in that department), and ability to make it work offline i.e. you can bookmark it on your phone and come back to it anytime you like, even when you don't have an internet connection). Hopefully I can roll those out in a month or so.

Thanks Bez! 

I used Harry Lorayne's memory system to learn Mnemonica so I don't think I could forget it if I tried [smile]

Still, I think that these types of apps are very helpful to folks. I appreciate you sharing it here!

Hi Rudy,

 

Cool! I also find Harry Lorayne's memory system VERY useful! But for the life of me I cannot make associations fast enough for memorized deck work. I know I can probably get to that point if I work harder on it, but memorizing the stack by rote wasn't actually any harder, contrary to what I expected. Personally I can do determinations faster this way. I reckon this way of doing it makes it "easier" to forget than doing it with a true mnemonic system that helps for long-term recall. [smile]

"""" But for the life of me I cannot make associations fast enough for memorized deck work"""

Nobody can (and it is not the intention at all)
Once you master your MD, you don't need those associations anymore. (although, you can always fall back on them if you have a black out).
Associations are only a TOOL to learn a MD.
HOW you learned your MD may not have an influence at the end result. (= the speed to recall a card or number)

The end result must be always the same: in 1/100 of a second you have to know the position or the card, without even thinking.

So there is nothing wrong with rote memory as a tool to learn a MD (except the fact that you have no life line)

However, associations are not only a "tool" or a "life line". They (can) give you much more possibilities with a MD ....

I am in the process of learning the mnemonica stack and I use the app ultimate stack trainer seems to help a lot with the memorizing it is kind of like a game so you subconsciously are thinking about it more I guess? Lol I wasn't aware of the website but I will use it as well. Thank you
