This site tells you steps to memorize things quickly. Apparently, There are three types of learning, which are auditory, visual, and experiential. First, you need to find out what type of learner you are so that you can plan how to memorize things effectively. I am a visual learner, so I tend to write, re-write, and read over what I wrote to memorize. People who are auditory learner could record things to memorize and listen to them over and over. Overall, I believe it is important to recognize the type of learning that is most appropriate and repeat the process to store the knowledge into LTS.
