Www.lumosity.com: I have refer my patients to a website http://www.Lumosity.Com/. It uses the latest research on brain neuroplasticity. Most people report that it is fun to do as well.

Write it out: Electronic devices have taken over education, but it maybe better to write your notes by hand. Hand writing class notes adds an additional motor sensory benefit to help create memories of what you just learned, while typing notes can be less engaging. You may also want to try discussing or teaching a study partner the subjects. Going over concepts and details help recall.
