||This book discusses memory as a skill, in which decision making at encoding and retrieval affects memory outcome. In considering the contexts in which memory is used, Skill and Strategy in Memory Use helps to answer such questions as: how do students decide if they've mastered material for an upcoming test? If asked where I live, how do I decide on a street address or city name? What influences my selection in a criminal lineup besides actual memory of the perpetrator? How do I remember to buy a present for future special occasions? And why do expert golfers better remember courses they've played than amateur golfers?|Coverage includes memory for ongoing events and memory for prospective events - how we remember to do future intended actions. Individual differences in memory skill is explored across people and situations, with special consideration given to the elderly population and how strategies at encoding and retrieval can offset what would otherwise be declining memory.
