The key to good grades is to learn how you learn best.
The single biggest complaint of ‘cookie cutter’ type ‘how to’ study guides is their one-size-fits-all approach.
Sure, there are definite things we can all do to improve our memory retention and understanding of what we’re studying, but fundamentally – what works for me might not work for you and vice versa unless…
Unless you adapt it to your specific learning style, which is HOW YOU LEARN.
Dr Marc Dussault’s bestselling book, in its 3rd edition, Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort explains the simple steps you can go through to determine the absolute best way YOU learn.
That is… the fastest way you get through new material. How you can understand the most and remember it ‘all’ when the time comes on your all-important final exam or test.
It’s a remarkably easy book to read with proven strategies to help you precisely identify how you learn and how to unleash the genius within you.
Let’s face it – there are times and subjects that just seem to come naturally to you, but you’ll be surprised to discover that it’s not necessarily the subject matter that comes naturally, but rather HOW you are studying that specific material that makes it so easy, almost effortless for you.
Imagine if you could breeze through ALL of your subjects?
One of the biggest misconceptions about studying is that students might be good in one subject and not good at another, for example, good at math and science and not good in history or geography. Although there is a need to be interested in the subject matter, learning is learning INDEPENDENT of the subject matter (content) that is being learned.
So the all-important missing link to bridge the gap between the content at the student is HOW you learn best – your learning STYLE, predisposition and requirements.
It’s all explained in my study guide, that has been sold in more than 30 countries and translated into four languages proving that these accelerated learning strategies work across cultures as well as throughout the academic system from grade school to graduate school.
Simply stated, you have 3 major predispositions – visual (what you see), auditory (what you hear) and kinaesthetic (what you feel). In some special vocations there are the other two senses: olfactory (what you smell) and gustatory (what you taste).
Determine how you learn best by leveraging your predisposition to ONE of these dominant styles, you can dramatically improve your grades with quicker understanding and improved retention and recall when it counts.
- If you’re a visual learner: You want to take a lot of notes, use a lot of colors, highlighters and even MindMapping to stimulate your visual sense. You want to read books that have a lot of images, graphs and charts. You’re better off looking at a lot of images and reading captions than reading text without any visual embellishments.
- If you’re an auditory learner: You want to LISTEN to audio or video programs, go to lectures and make sure you’re close to the teacher to hear what he/she is saying WITHOUT the distraction of other noises and possible chatter at the back of the room. You also want to read more than usual BECAUSE as you read, you say the words to yourself AS YOU READ.
- If you’re a kinaesthetic learner: You want to be involved in the subject matter. You need to FEEL the content, that means role playing and creating study elements that are tangible – you might create a scrapbook for your notes, watch video presentations that put you INTO the context of the situation, ideally you want to participate in any LIVE demonstration, create a model or anything else that is physical – something you can touch and feel.
My study book will help you to (1) identify your learning style and (2) help you define how you should be studying to optimise your learning style and become much more efficient and effective with your studying.
