How do i memorize a whole textbook in 2 weeks

  1. Feb 15, 2014 #1
    well i know that i should not be asking this.but seriously i am forced to do this as i have mentioned in 1 of my previous threads that i have no other way but to just cram in and digest the whole material.actually i am having my finals the end of this month i know the concepts the only thing i have not done is rote memorization.if i dont write the exact book words they would fail me and i have to waste years repeating high school.it's not only physics i have to memorize but also other subjects like chemistry,botany,zoology,c++,english literature and java.so all these exams would be coming the end of this month and as you could see very little tie is there for me to memorize.what should i do now i am totally nervous

    I don't understand why a school would force you to memorize so much in 2 weeks and I do not believe it is possible for most to memorize that amount of material in that time frame.

    Memorizing physics is a sure way to fail.

    I don't really see a way for you to cram 10 months of work in 2 weeks.

    I suppose it depends on the kind of exams they give.

    It's your fault.The school gave you 10 months(Which is more than enough) and you are shortening it to 2 weeks.
    If you try all day and night,you can get it done(but it's hard work)
    I always had to rote memorize all the books of subjects like Biology,Chemistry and Islam.It is like studying in hell.However,I memorized all of biology books of two years in just a day and night.And managed to get 85/100 in biology,97/100 for islam and 87/100 for chemistry.
    Learn all day and Night and don't think about anything else.Don't get bored and don't sleep so much.
    (I know this is difficult but this is the only way,except for a person with a USB port in his brain)

    i succeded in this mission but the problem lied not in learning but writing during the exam as a slow writer

    If you have two weeks only why are you spending so much time on this forum?

    I can't imagine any good reason for memorizing a whole book. Learn definitions, basic facts, and relationships so that you can apply them to problems.
