When given a new project, task or job role, what is a strategy that you can use to help ensure success?
I would first begin by doing a SWAT analysis, if necessary for my new project or role. This would help me gauge the Strengths, Weaknesses, and potential opportunities. From there you can make detailed SMART goals. By making them SMART, you can ensure that these goals will be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound.

When trying to retain and memorize large quantities of material please identify one strategy that can help make this endeavor successful.
One strategy to help with large quantities of memorization is the use of mnemonics. This is a rhyme or phrase that can help you remember larger ideas or concepts. One example is the phrase: Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, as a way to remember the order of operations in mathematics. The first letter of each word corresponds with a mathematical concept, ie. Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Divison, Addition, Subtraction
Define the literary term litotes and please give an example.
Litotes is an ironic understatement made when a negative statement is used to affirm a positive meaning or sentiment. For example the common phrase "not too shabby".
