Study Tips Revealed

Today’s post is a series of questions from Virginia Buratto.

You say “use coloured pens” (by the way almost everyone knows this technique) but you don’t say if one should read a text first and then highlight it or if he should highlight straight away or if it is better to read the whole book a couple of time before dividing into sections and start studying.

First, just because ‘almost everyone knows this technique’ doesn’t mean I should ignore it. In fact quite a few students either don’t know it OR don’t do it. Just look around at your classmates’ note books and you’ll see most STILL DON’T DO what works.

The question on highlighting is a GREAT ONE. I suggest you SPEED READ your material FIRST. Then and ONLY then will you know, AFTER reading it what is important and what is NOT. Then you can go back and highlight accordingly. Ideally, you do this BEFORE your class as the SECOND pass.

Because I teach SPEED READING, I suggest you learn that skill. If you haven’t yet bought my video program, it’s only $47, buy it now. It’ll pay for itself with the first hour when you at least DOUBLE your current reading speed. If you don’t SPEED READ, that’s unfortunate because it’s an easy skill to develop so I don’t really have suggestions for non-speed readers. Sorry.

Moreover you never mention any memory techniques (and that surprised me a lot). Why? Do you think they are overrated? I truly expected the book to present a system that combined speed reading for comprehension and memory techniques for remembering was able to make the difference for every student.

When I wrote this book, I wanted to keep it SIMPLE and to the point. Otherwise it ends up being a big, thick, complicated book. The strategies I teach WORK for EVERY SINGLE PERSON who applies them. I have not found the need for memory ‘systems’ and you are the first person to mention this. BUT I have to be honest – if you are NOT SPEED READING, comprehension and memory will be a problem. SPEED READING decreases the time it takes to read, but it also dramatically improves comprehension and memory WITHOUT having to learn any systems.

Before ending this letter I would like you to know that I didn’t mean to be rude or to offend you in any way. I truly admire you and look up to you for what you have been able to do in your life. I simply feel like that in this book “the meat ” isn’t there (let me point out that instead the speed reading course is very well done).

Virginia, I understand your perceptions and I know many people would like it to be ‘more complicated’, but it’s not. That is the POWER of the book’s message. Once you ‘own’ these strategies, your grades will improve and you’ll come to realise the GIFT I am giving you – Getting Better Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort is all about “The Least Amount Of Effort” bit.

This is lost on many people and I know you haven’t missed that message. You are not alone – people WANT it to be more complex and complicated, that way they won’t feel as bad about what they haven’t done all this time. Once they get over it, they realise the STRATEGIES are SIMPLE, EASY and STRAIGHT FORWARD. That is why they are so powerful and within EVERYONE’S REACH.

Complex memory techniques are not – they require training – training that can be avoided with what I teach.

In your book you say that we should model those who are better than us in a particular field by asking them questions. So if you don’t mind I would like to ask you some questions. When you where studying law what were you doing? Did you study in the morning or late night? How long was every study session? Did you find it hard to concentrate after a certain amount of time studying? Did you read the whole book a couple of times before highliting it or what? How did you remember things?

I always study at night. You need to determine what works best for you. I prefer to study for several hours at a time and get into the ‘groove’ of my thoughts. I will read whenever and wherever I have the opportunity. On a plane, waiting for a plane, for an appointment, etc. I carry my reading material with me EVERYWHERE I GO. That is the KEY to optimal time management. I only SPEED READ the material ONCE. I then highlight it AFTER I have read it. Memory is not a problem when you SPEED READ and use the strategies in my book. No one who has applied the strategies has ever asked for memory or comprehension ‘assistance’.

Thank you so much. English isn’t my first language that’s the reason why my English isn’t always correct and easy to understand.

Thanks again

When I was studying for my Ph.D., on a Friday night, I read for 3 hours and then watched a movie. My reading speed at the time was 1,800 words per minute which is 6 times faster than my classmates.

That means it took them 18 hours to read what I read on Friday night – that is ALL DAY SATURDAY and ALL DAY SUNDAY, 9 hours/day.

Now that’s contrast for you.

P.S.

If you think you don’t retain as much by speed reading, you’ve got it all wrong. I’ll prove it to you.

Think of one of your MOST BORING TEACHERS…

I bet you he/she spoke VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

The reason I know that is because the slower you read, the less you focus and the less you remember.

The FASTER you read, the more you understand AND remember.

Amazing isn’t it?

Speed reading is a MUST-HAVE skill for any serious student. It’s the difference between being a ‘bookworm’ and having a fun student lifestyle. Imagine reading 6 times faster than your classmates – what would that do to your grades?

When I was studying for my first Ph.D., I was reading 1,800 words/minute which meant that I was 6 times faster than my classmates. On a Friday night, from 7 to 10 PM I would read for 3 hours, and then watch a movie and go to bed. My classmates had to spend ALL DAY Saturday and ALL DAY SUNDAY to read what I had read on Friday night.

That meant I had the WHOLE WEEKEND to do whatever I wanted – additional study, or in my case, I was DOUBLING the SALES and TRIPLING my PROFITS while I was opening up a second branch office!
