INTERPRETATION:


If you scored a 27 or 28, congratulations! It looks like you have a pretty good memory. This may be a surprising outcome for you, particularly if you bought this book to improve your memory. This should speak to the fact that your perception of your memory may not be an accurate estimate of how well your memory
actually operates. In any event, this book hasn’t been a wasted investment. Now, at least you know for sure that you have a pretty decent memory. Nonetheless, even if your test resulted in a very positive finding, working with the strategies in this book can still help you to improve your memory. You did pick up the book for a reason, and we promise to deliver on that. If you scored between 22 and 26, you’re doing all right but
you could use some help. This is not to say that you have a “bad memory,” just that you  could use some help with improving it. You’ve come to the right place.We are all about helping you 22 to 26ers. If you  scored in this range, this book is bound to be of some help to you. Read on, and improve your memory.
If you scored 21 or below, and you’ve noticed that you’re having difficulties with your memory or your thinking abilities of sufficient severity to interfere with your functioning, you probably would benefit from a good neurological evaluation. Don’t panic. This test is not a diagnosis. But, if you are having trouble
with your memory and you scored in this range, we recommend seeking professional help. You will want to share your concerns with your general practitioner, and youmay want to ask that doctor for a referral to a neurologist. A neurologist can give you a battery of various examinations that will help to assess whether
you are having cognitive difficulties or not.
