So I have an exam on Saturday for which I have been procrastinating. So now, I have three days to memorize large amount of data, as in, many different biochemical pathways, the names of each steps, being able to draw, all the catalysts, enzymes, energies, etc.
For one pathway, (Glycolysis), I found a mnemonic on wiki (another one is not safe for family forum): "Goodness Gracious, Father Franklin Did Go By Picking Pumpkins (to) Prepare Pies": Glucose Glucose-6-P Fructose-6-P Fructose-1,6-diP Dihydroxyacetone-P Glyceraldehyde-P 1,3-Biphosphoglycerate 3-Phosphoglycerate 2-Phosphoglycerate (to) Phosphoenolpyruvate [PEP] Pyruvate"
That works great, but does nothing for remembering the structures, and all that. Obviously that's just one pathway, and I need to memorize many.
So my question: are there any memory tips or tricks that people use to increase recall and/or to memorize more efficiently? Right now, I'm just writing it out until I remember it without looking. Which obviously is time consuming.
