    Yeah, take some time and describe this mind map thing. If it's some cool learning tool, I'm all over it. I need all the help I can get.

    This chap had a book that I read in a bookstore once about 3-4 years back (the kind of bookstore with sofas where you can read the books and have a coffee).

    While he has some ideas, where he errs is that on the line of his map there is no inherent connection between the items.

    For example: if your list to memorize was:
    -Rabbit
    -Chair
    -Carrot

    While there might be a minor benefit to drawing the three items in a map has a rabbit in the middle, and a line out with a chair on the line, and a line out with a carrot on that line, it is more logical and tighter connections formed if it is a picture of a rabbit sitting in a chair, eating a carrot. The premise is that you want to deduce the picture by getting one element and deducing the others by that one image. For example, the rabbits teeth would be half missing in that component because it is buried in the next object so you know that it is something that goes into the mouth. The rabbit's lower body is bent at a 90 degree angle so there must be a boxish-type object below him that he is sitting on. He sits on a chair.

    Best wishes and have fun, roo
