There are two advices that the author would like to
a) As you can see there are only four cases of different endings: in Genitive for masculine and neutral form; and in plural in Dative in masculine and neutral form.
b) If you keep in mind a) and the plural forms then the declension is just learning the definite (and later indefinite) articles. And since the masculine and the neutral are the same in plural the number of articles is quite limited.
