I can't memorize everything

I've just started learning how to code and almost finished the html course but I feel like I've forgotten most of the tags. What should I do?

@Philip this was how I used to feel. I actually dropped out of college because of that. Now, 3 years later, I'm realizing I remembered more than I thought I did. Just keep at it and take your time. if you rush through the lessons and not practice, you won't learn the material. After completing a lesson (or a whole module it you prefer) practice everything you learned until you understand what everything is doing. By doing that you will start remembering the tags and where/how to use them. Also, try studying the material you want to learn before bed and again in the morning if possible. Studies show sleep helps to memorize as your short term memory is converted to long term while you sleep.

you should do practice on making codes in html without practice that's not possible make codes more and more that will help you to remember the tags

You should practise by creating codes

Don't worry, it is highly unlikely to memorize everything or even the vast majority of things, the first time is the key. Practice makes perfect, so keep trying. Even if you need to reference things multiple times as you work, that is how you learn. Good luck!

Scientist say you need to relearn 7 times a lesson (not the same day but more when you feel you forgot what you learned) until you actually know it. + by exercise and learning by other ways your brain will memorise the lesson even more!

It’s much more important to know the syntax than specific tags. You could always just go back to the lesson and check what tag you need, it’s only really important to memorize syntax. For example, I could look in a French - English dictionary to see how to write this in French, but it still wouldn’t be as easy to check if my grammar would be correct.

No one expects you to remember everything on offer in a language - that's why documentation exists. Through lots of reuse you will come to remember the things that you use most often

None can remember all things learned once. Try to learn what kind of methods/structures are possible and how you create them. This is done by practicing. If you have an issue you cannot solve right now, you may can remember a partial solution of your issue you have done before and you can look up this part.

Before you forget more of it, start hacking away! search google for “html 5 starter template” and open that file in a code editor like Sublime. Start typing p tags and headings into the body of that document. Preview the file in chrome. Use the skills before you loose them
