Hi, I know Mnemonica stack is great for magic and I am planning on learning it. I don't have a very good memory, so is there any tips, tricks, apps or ideas I should know before jumping into all of this? Thanks!
There are apps. Do you have Android or Apple or??? I'll see if I can remember which ones I liked if you have the same device type. Also, do you know what you want to do once you have learned the stack or are you just learning it because stacks are awesome?
I tried several aids to help me learn this stack.
-The memory arts by David & Sarah Trustman
-an app (cant remember the name)
-Scenic 52 by Jamie D Grant (this ebook made it very easy for me to learn the stack quickly in one afternoon)
Allthough Scenic 52 worked for me really well, it might not for you. Every brain is diffirent..
And like RealityOne said, the method in Mnemonica is also a very good one.
Buy the book if you dont have it, not only for the method of learning the stack, but for all the rest that is in there
For me, it was a combination of the points Juan suggests in his book (especially numbering each of the cards on front and back), and sheer repetition. It sucks now, but if you put in a solid week of work, your future self will thank you.
Yeah, after listening through it once I had it downish in about an hour. I'm still working on it to make it more immediate but if you want to get the stack in your head quickly Rick Lax's Mnemonica Trainer is really good.
