Here you’ll find links to all the pages currently online on this website.
This website is a bit of a mess I know! I’m hoping that I will soon enough find the time and energy to finish writing all the most important missing pages and better organize and present all those that are already online. In the meantime, if you’re looking for something particular, hopefully you will find it here.
Note: When I had the mention “(Complements)” in front of a link(s), it means that this or those particular pages are meant to be complements to the page right above. Those “sub-pages” are often though not always optional and non essential.

(Possibly) Important links to other web sites:
- If you want to prepare for a CMSA event as quickly as possible, you can do so by reading this article about basic competition strategies. The CMSA is a small volunteer-led organization based in Canada organizing memory and mental math in-person competitions and online “honorary challenges”. Those “honorary challenges” are free and unofficial. Their main goal is to provide a simple way for anyone around the world to motivate him or herself to develop or improve their skills.
- If you already know most of what you need to know and you’re in the mood for training, just use one of those sample disciplines and training tools.
- If you’re not a fan of this particular website and you’d prefer to learn about the art of memory using some other resource – or if you’re some kind of information junky – here are plenty of recommended websites, books and training websites.
- Do you speak French? My ToutRetenir.com instructional website is much more complete than this one.
- Although it’s usually better to use places you’ve visited in person, I will sometimes use Matterport or Google street view to build some new memory palaces.
- I of course use Anki for long-term retention of all kinds of facts
