About This Class



This course is the fifth in the series "The Memory Experts' Tools" and is dedicated to the PEG System of memorization.

The PEG Memory System is extremely efficient, but at the same time easy to learn and to apply.

The essence of this technique is described by the memory expert Harry Lorraine in just a few words:

  "Screw a short peg into a wall—and you can hang your jacket or coat on it. Keep a peg in your mind —and you can hang any thought on it."


In the first course of this series, dedicated to the loci method, we've learned how to create the structure on which to place the mnemonic images

Then,in the Person-Action(Dominic)system  and in the Person-Action-Object system courses we've learned two powerfull methods to create these mental pictures, by encoding the information into memorable images.

The 4th course of this series presented the Major System, another powerful memory system ,also called The Ultimate Memory System.

In this course,you will learn another important memory system.

The most popular systems in this category are:

  • Alphabet System
  • Animal-Peg Words System
  • Body-Parts System
  • Number-Rhyme System
  • Number-Shape System
  • Number Symbol System
  • The Major System(the Consonant Peg Method)

In this course, I will present you these main Peg systems.

The series will be continued with other courses dedicated to the most powerful mnemonic techniques, presented in detail and with a lot of examples.These courses can make you understand better what memory improvement is about, and see for yourself just how simple and handy this skill is. You will learn simple but powerful techniques used by memory experts in competitions, that can help you achieve amazing results with your memory.

As you will see in this course, using the Peg Memory System of memorization really can make many aspects of your life much easier.
