Many people study characters quickly, and forget them quickly, I have a good method. When you study a new character, you should first memorize its radical. Now I will give you all an explanation about what radicals are all about. For instance, the character hú has the water radical, it is definitely connected with water. The character lín has the trees/wood radical, it definitely is connected with trees. Now you all understand, ya? Memorizing radicals certainly is a good method.
