What Your Score Means

8 or more words: You're a memory superstar. Make sure you follow the long-term strategies so you'll keep your title.

5 to 7 words: This is typical for a middle-aged person. Learning a few brain-boosting tricks will help.

4 or fewer words: A low score doesn't mean you're headed for senility, but you should take a look at your life — the issue may be your stress levels — to see what might be interfering with your memory. — Gary Small, M.D., author of iBrain (HarperCollins)
