And when you’re using Magnetic Imagery correctly, you can use the principle of compounding as you memorize vocabulary.
Then, once you are more practiced with the basics of the Magnetic Memory Method, you can do very interesting things within rooms. Depending on your skill level, your rooms can have multiple bookcases.
For the sake of this example, let’s say the bookcase has 10 shelves.
Decide in advance if you will memorize from the top to the bottom, or the bottom to the top.

But as Kevin Richardson showed us in this episode on how he became the Perfect Learn Japanese app, if you persist, you will succeed.Again: Aller guten Dinge sind drei, say the Germans (all good things are three), so I’ll give you one more example before I go.One shelf down, I place “anbetteln.” This means to beg.I would go from the top to bottom myself, but go with whatever works for you.The point is to move in a linear progression without skipping shelves.That way, you’ve eliminated a detail you have to remember because you already know how the next word will start.This works just as well with Sanskrit as it does with German phrases.It’s important, however, to take time before getting started to predetermine and prepare the way in advance.In this case, I decided in advance to do only ten words, so I only made one book case.Imagine, for example, having a bookcase in a room and placing 5-10 words on each shelf. Let’s say that you decide upon having 10 bookcases per room in a 10 room memory palace.If each bookcase has 10 levels and you store just one word per level, then you have a room with 100 words in it.
