Training tools and sample disciplines
Again here’s our quick guide for how to compete as a beginner.
- Le nouvellement créé site http://www.standard-memory.com/ vous offre gratuitement une infinité d’exemples d’épreuves. Sachez cependant que le format des épreuves qui y sont présentées est basé sur ce qui est utilisé dans la majorité des compétitions internationales. Pour plusieurs raisons, le CMSA a choisi de modifier certains de ces formats.
- IAM images practice sets
- IAM images from past competitions
- You can create a free account on Memocamp.com and train the images event online as much as you want. Just follow the instructions here.
- Sample CMSA Names and faces
- Names and faces from past CMC competitions
- English random words from past competitions organized by the Asia Memory Sports Alliance
- English random words from past CMC competitions.
- French random words from past CMC competitions.
- One example of the format that will be used for random digits at the next CMSA National Memory Championship. Competitors can choose to see the digits separated by groups of 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 or 12 digits.
- An excel file you can use to produce an infinite amount of random digits presented in blocks of 12, just like in CMSA competitions. Use F9 to produce new digits.
- All the IAM images and the random words from past Asia Memory Sports Alliance competitions were first published on https://www.asia-memory.org/events.php
- The sample disciplines from the Canadian Memory Championship were first published on http://www.canadianmemorychampionships.ca/resources/

- During the competition you might want to use earmuffs that will block most sound and help you focus.
- For speed cards it’s certainly not mandatory but if you might want to get one of those timers. Cheaper ones from China are available here.
- You can of course just buy decks of cards from the dollar store, or those if you want to be able to easily spread them on the table during recall.
