Vos Savant, the Sunday supplement queen who makes mincemeat out of seemingly indecipherable puzzlers and brainteasers in her weekly Parade column, has written a primer for those who've forgotten the golden rule.

"I've Forgotten Everything . . ." is not a book of pop psychology or mnemonics, although a crash course in memory improvement is given in the first chapter. Most of the book is packed with information compiled as a series of "mental exercises designed to build your knowledge base." An introductory quiz establishes your individual weaknesses and strengths to enable you to focus on your needs. Literature, vocabulary, logical reasoning, abstract thought, sequences, and other mental stretches are covered. One most interesting chapter features classic post-Renaissance artwork that has been composed with "something missing," which the reader must discover. Vos Savant, inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records and the Guinness Hall of Fame for the highest IQ, also authors the "Ask Marilyn" column in Parade magazine. Denise Perry Donavin
