There are just some things you need to memorize. Sure, you've got notepads and stickies and all manner of electronic tools to remember stuff for you, but there's always that stray something that you need when you're not around your memory aids—maybe it's an address, an important phone number, your ATM PIN (you didn't write it on the back of the card, did you?) or (shudder) the name of your supervisor's spouse or kids. Nothing can substitute for having that all-important piece of intel just when you need it.

There's nothing like repetition to memorize something. Back in the Third Grade, you used flash cards to memorize the multiplication tables, running through them again and again and again until you lived and breathed those numbers. Today you don't need to rummage though the junk drawer looking for index cards; just check out Memoriser.

Memoriser (the British spelling, with an "s") is a tool you can use on your computer. You define the questions and answers, and tell it how often to quiz you. It figures out which things you've learning and which you need more work on, and tweaks its schedule accordingly. After all, why spend tons of time on questions you're good on, rather than on the stuff that you need to work on more?

Memoriser run under Windows.

    There’s also iFlash for Mac. You can use the trial/demo for as long as you like. It’s great. I use it all the time/have been for over a year now.
