The Major Memory System, or the Consonant Peg Method, is one of the most powerful memory systems available. You will be fascinated by how simply and playfully you can remember lots of numbers with this system.   

You've probably heard about the Major system so far, but in this course I tried to show you more about this technique, along  with a lot of examples, so you can fully understand it and apply it to  your everyday activities.

Created in the mid 17th century, the Major System has been used and continually improved upon for more than 300 years.

Tony Buzan, the man behind Mind Mapping and the World Memory Championships, wrote about this technique:

"The Major System is the Ultimate Memory System."  

This system is one of the most used by mental athletes. One of the reasons is that it is easier to learn than other memory systems and also it is fun to use.

  The Major System  can become your new mnemonic weapon that will help you:                             

  • To Remember Long Numbers; 

  • Long Sequences of Shuffled Playing Cards(one or more Decks);

  • To Remember the Birthdays of your Friends or the Dates of your Appointments;

  • If you’re a student, this method will give you a boost for studying: Poems, History, Biology, Medical Terms, Mathematics or anything you want to learn.

I'm sure you will enjoy it and I can't wait to be your guide and mentor on this exciting new journey!
