"Rote Memory" Is a Good Thing...

The more you take these quizzes, the more you will retain. Rote memory will kick in for you when you least expect it. When you're at a party, for example, you can throw out some of your newly-learned information and impress everyone!

This is the eighth quiz in a series of many now, and more to come.

If you're taking the quizzes and not scoring very well, keep taking them over and over until you do. That's how your brain absorbs and retains.

As always, I wish you continued good luck with the quizzes.
