Today’s post is from Thanh who is challenged with focus and concentration when sitting down to studying – a common problem a lot of students have – bad study habits. First, let’s hear from Thanh…
I am not a young person, I am 53 year old, ambitious, hard working, good character, honest, responsible…I took a course more than two year ( Life Licence Qualification Program) I try, it try but I keep failing. I saw your program online, I ordered, hopefully it could help me to pass the exam. In present time, the job I have seems not secure any more. I wish to have to have the certificate to persue a new career. Would you advise the solution to affect my study? I work from 6am and be home at 6pm after home I prepare my own food, when I sit down to concentrate on the book, I feel like sleeping. But I watching TV or online reading I was awake. Sound like I am lazy, am I? Thank you for your concern.
Several students have asked me this question click here -> To get Cheap textbooks. Sometimes it’s all about knowing the quick answer to a question, which is why you want to create a MasterMind Group for yourself – to study better as well as achieve in sports and your career.
You’ll have better answers to questions like this because the people in your MasterMind Group will have ‘all the answers you need’ even to questions you didn’t know you needed to ask!

I have some questions about your study method. I am a 16-year old Dutch student in High School and I currently have bad grades for Physics, Chemistry and Math (the highest level of it). My mentor said that changing the profile (which means changing those bad-grades subjects into easy subjects which I find interesting, like history, geography and an easier form of Math) would be a good option to consider. However, there is just one study I need to follow, or else, I won’t have enough subjects to pass that year. This subject would be French. The only problem is, I didn’t follow French lessons this year, because it wasn’t in my profile. My questions are: Does your product makes it easier for me to study history, geography and an easier form of Math, which I all have to study in, let’s say, 6 months, while they are courses designed to learn in one year, so it will be twice more difficult. And does your product also makes it easier to study a language like French in 6 months, while I didn’t even follow it for a year? In the 3rd class (the Dutch High School consists of 6 classes) I got an 8 for French (which would be a B in the USA?), but I didn’t learn the new grammar and words they thought in the 4th class.
So is this product a solution for achieving good grades for these subjects, while I haven’t study them for a year?
Ruben, First all let me say you’re on the right track investigating solutions to your study problems. My study system is designed to help you study any subject more effectively. Simply put, there are things you do when you study the subjects you like, enjoy and are ‘good at’. My system helps you discover what those are so that you become better at ALL your subjects. It’s a process that can happen very quickly, within days and weeks if you are disciplined and stick to the system.
Your question about languages is interesting – language education is different from ‘regular subjects’ because it requires an element of ‘performance’ when speaking as well as a sense of creativity when constructing sentences, paragraphs and longer communications.
An example in French is below… At 600 words per minute, it may be too fast, but you can slow down the program to a speed that suits you. The reason this is a great learning tool is it FORCES you to absorb the words as fast as possible, faster than you can verbally say them so it becomes ‘second nature’ and automatic for you.
It’s not expensive and can dramatically improve BOTH your vocabulary and grammar.

Taking intensive courses is a decision that needs to be made based on your academic, intellectual and disciplinary skills. Not everyone can ‘accelerate’ their study by taking on MORE courses. Only experienced students with outstanding study techniques can do that.
I would suggest that you first buy my study book, use the strategies to see how it helps you. If you are disciplined enough and apply them properly, then and only then, should you consult your parents and mentor to determine if you can fast-track your language studies.
The bottom line is that my study system works BECAUSE it is designed to work for you, based on how YOU study and learn best. Give it try, it’s backed up with an 8-week money-back guarantee that means there is no risk at all. If the strategies don’t work for you, just ask for a refund.
Also, you can use Rapid Reader to speed read your WORD and PDF documents at lightning fast speed – ESPECIALLY if your dyslexic. Give the video a go below and see what happens… Imagine how easier it will be for you to read this way!
Some dyslexic students have found that ONCE they’ve used Rapid Reader for a while, their dyslexia ‘subsides’ which makes no sense, but they don’t care!!!
Survey means to scope out and know what type of exam you are studying for. Asking questions helps you to understand what the answers are. When reading, be active, include graphs and charts. Stop periodically to go over relationships and recite key answers in your head – literally say them in your head. Reviewing simply means to re-read some of the things you’ve covered to make sure you still have a good understanding of the material.
Additional resources for students who want to accelerate their learning can also be found on the Get Better Grades website.
