Memory is the generative, interactive, ongoing mental process of retaining and recalling knowledge or experiences. A student's ability to use and manipulate his/her memory greatly influences the learning process. Memory strategies have three primary purposes: 1) to increase one's awareness of the memory process, 2) to increase one's awareness of his/her own memory abilities (strengths and weaknesses), 3) to offset the tendency to forget things. Because memory skills cross-cut most academic tasks, proficiency in this area can have a profound, positive impact on academic performance
