  • I always, always used to doodle at school as a child – however, parents and teachers stopped me from doing it again and again!

    It’s so good to hear/read I was right way back than – and students, PLEASE always follow your intuition!!

    Thanx for the blog!!

  • Fantastic session. Thanks for sharing this with us Marc.

    As the head of a company that is Research and Development for hire, we are constantly having to come up with new ideas and even breakthroughs in new technology. So creative processes like these need to be better understood.
    Our clients usually only see the final outcome but some that we work with very closely get to be part of the process and our whiteboard does get a real workout.

  • Dr. Marc,

    I am crazy on doodling and my book’s margin is full of doodling. But, I don’t think it affects my memory.

    As she (sunnibrown) said it is good for us. Please let me know ‘how to make it useful?’.

    Thanks

  • Sir,
    Which edition of your book did you mean?

  • Sir,
    It’s very near to my final exam (promotion exam to enter college) but still I did not find my suitable studying style. I used to study in different style I like (whether scientifically proved or not). I don’t believe in cramming, what shall I do?

    Yours Sincerely,
    Safwan

  • Sir,

    I guess you did not get my point.

    As the first chapter of the book indicating the us to know the outcome by the high ranking we made in different exams.When i checked the strategies where i got good marks,it include mind mapping,understanding text,P.O.P.C.O.R.N method,peg words etc.And the same strategies also made me get less marks in another exam.So i dont know my strategies suitable for me and the subjects.

    Hope for your early response.

    Thank u
    Safwan

    • Hi Safwan,

      The strategies you mention in your comment are NOT study strategies or study tips that I recommend. So you are right – I am confused.

      I think you’re mixing up my study book with another one.

      I also think trying too many different strategies and taking “everyone’s” advice can create a lot of confusion and won’t help you determine how YOU best learn. Please re-read Chapter 1 of my study book carefully since it explains how YOU can get the best result for each type of exam you write.

      Of course, as I explain in the book, what works for YOU won’t work for someone else and vice-versa. This is why it’s do valuable, it’s like you get the key to your secrets and once you have it, you can unlock the genius within you – like magic!

  • Sir,
    Could you explain much more briefly the 1st chapter #1 – (Know Your Outcome) of unit 1 (The 4 things you must do to get from the grades you’re getting to the grades you want)
    and
    2nd chapter (The 80-20 Rule) of 3rd unit (A simple strategy to help you determine what to do to get the best results)

    Thanks regards,
    Safwan

    • Someone wise once said “If I had more time, I would have written less.”

      However, my study book is as succinct, brief and condensed as I am willing to describe the strategies – unless you have a specific question, I’m afraid I don’t have the time nor the motivation to summarise it just for brevity’s sake.

      I am willing to clarify any SPECIFIC questions you may have.
