Aim and Need- Current breed of students live in the tsunami of information. Which means that the students problem is less of obtaining information & more of retaining and organizing all the information that they require to ingest both during studies and afterwards to keep themselves updated. To achieve this, many students use numerous learning strategies like mnemonics, flow charts, abbreviations, maps etc. One such technique that help students in this task is called “Mind Mapping”. Unfortunately this technique has received little attention since its invention, an attempt was also made by us in utilizing this concept on Dental undergraduate students in teaching and evaluating them. The results were encouraging. We recommend this technique for all teachers/students. This review details the potential of mind mapping in learning, organizing and retrieving vast information that students acquire during their course.
