Mnemonics - Memory Aids

2

What are Mnemonics?
Mnemonics are memory aids. They usually are a simple phrase or series of letters that makes
it easier to remember certain things.
The key to mnemonics is to build a strong association between the mnemonic and for what
they stand. Mnemonics take a little bit of practice, but become easier the more you use them.
When candidates prepare to undertake examinations the use of mnemonics can be a useful
skill to master, this skill is quite useful in the field of health and safety examinations where
candidates do tend to have a lot that they have to remember.
The mnemonics that follow cover a number, but not all of the key areas of NEBOSH
International General Certificate study, and they are no substitute to actually first reading
through and understanding the study material.
