Speed Reading A Must For Students Of All Ages

If you haven’t yet purchased my Speed Reading Video Program, this is what you’re missing out on – RESULTS LIKE THESE. One of my ‘students’ sent me his actual results with the condition of anonymity because I know he’s going to improve even more than this.

Speed Read THIS Book!

As you know, I’m a speed reader and I also teach students how to speed read with my home study video program.

As you increase your reading speed, running out of pages to read becomes a problem – NOT in this case!

Speed Reading, Read Faster

Huge Book - Great For Speed Readers!

Readers Make 2.3 Times More Money!

Here’s an astounding fact – readers make more money – a lot more! Even in tough economic times. According to a number of recent studies, business people who read at least seven business books a year earn over 2.3 times more than those who read only one book per year.


One reason is they have a constant flow of new ideas and strategies they can use to help their careers, their teams and their companies.

A study by Bersin & Associates found that while 74.9% of all managers understand that reading more would give them a competitive advantage, they simply think they don’t have the time to read more books.

The problem … who has time to do all that reading?

The solution… Learn how to do speed reading! It’s easy and guaranteed!

Reducing Exam Anxiety

Today’s blog post is based on a comment from Ad Poi, he’s a little stressed because he has an exam in about 3 weeks. I recently filmed a video called “5 Minutes To Go From Panic To Passing Tomorrow’s Exam” which is now included as a bonus to my study book Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort. In the video, I explain 5 strategies you can use to cram for an exam if you’ve run out of time and are stuck at the last minute with too much to study and not enough time to get it done.

The other suggestion I have for Ad is to get my Speed Reading Video Program. Rapid Reader is FANTASTIC for WORD, PDF and Website reading, but when it comes to reading your textbooks, you need to know how to speed read.

Hi Dr Dussault,

I came to know about your book and your strategies recently.Your strategies, you say, help get the best grades with the least amount of effort, but I wonder if they are going to help me since , I have 3 and a half weeks until my exam and I feel not quite prepared.

What I need are strategies to get the most done with the least amount of time, not the least effort. I am willing to give in a great deal of effort , but I am anxious and afraid that I won’t be able to complete all the courses to my satisfaction (especially chemistry, which I hate and have neglected greatly until now).

So, I ask whether your book will help me get the best grades with the least amount of TIME?

I have managed to get a copy of the rapid reader software yesterday, and am trying to increase my onscreen as well as off-screen reading speed.

My greatest drawback though is that I get quite nervous during exams and my efficiency is more than halved. As a result, my grades are compromised even though I worked hard. So I ask whether your book can help me getting rid of this anxiety and increase my concentration.

Thank You.

How To Speed Read Twice As Fast As You Do Now

It’s incredibly simple and easy to learn, in fact I have taught thousands of students, many of them grade school kids… Why not you? Have a look at this short YouTube video and then decide you can do it.

How To Speed Read Twice As Fast As You Do Now

Unleash The Genius Within You – FREE 2-hour event in Geelong, Victoria

The 2-hour event will be followed by an optional 1-hour tutorial where you can ask me any question you want about speed learning and speed reading…

How To Build Study Endurance and Stamina

If you are going back to school, are in school or are studying for your certification in any vocational trade, you will need to know how to study.  The fact is that almost everyone hates studying!

Learning how to study isn’t something most of us think about.  The good news is that you can learn how to study effectively, if you follow the proven systems, tips and tools found in my ebook Get The Best Grades With the Least Amount of Effort.

Just like working out at the gym.  You can train your brain and build your study endurance and stamina over time.

Some key study tips to get your started:

1. Get to know your schedule - start blocking out time to study.  This will help your brain and body get into the habit of studying on a regular basis.

2. Only study when you are rested. It doesn’t do you any good to try to commit things to memory when you are exhausted.  You are wasting your time, and the information will just slip away.

3. Study where there are no distractions – libraries and quiet rooms are great, recreation areas are not.

4. Take notes in class – this helps you remember, but also points out important points when you are reviewing.

Try this study strategy – it’s a proven study tip learnt from my years of experience.

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.

Better learning habits will only make your life easier in the long run!

Additional resources for students who want to accelerate their learning can also be found on the Get Better Grades website.

Building endurance and stamina to sustain your newfound study skills is covered in more detail in Chapter 9 of my ebook Get Best Grades with the Least Amount of Effort. Get it now to start saving time studying and improve your grades THIS WEEK.

Make sure you also consider my Speed Learning Video and Speed Reading Video products – to truely bolster your study efficiency.

My Book Can Produce ‘Instant’ Results

Zina, a concerned mom asks how quickly my study tips can help her son. The quick answer is almost instantly. I would NOT recommend buying it the DAY BEFORE A FINAL EXAM and expecting a miracle, but even the day before an exam can be a great time to LEARN 3 or 4 EXAM TAKING STRATEGIES that work, well instantly DURING your next exam!

Without jumping into 3 or 4 tangential discussions, my book is DESIGNED to help students get better grades IMMEDIATELY. Within 1 hour of reading – even skimming through the book, a student will quickly realise how easy it is to put these study techniques to use RIGHT AWAY.

If you know a student who is struggling, buy my study book, and enter his/her e-mail so he/she gets it AND ALL THE BONUSES directly.

The sooner he/she gets it, the better.

To be straight to the point – the study strategies are so SIMPLE and EASY, some people ask for a refund because they just don’t understand the POWER OF SIMPLICITY. As you can read for yourself on this blog and the fact that my study book has been translated into 3 languages with 2 more coming, AND it’s been sold to students from 29 different countries — these strategies work.

Get the study book for your son ASAP and watch his transformation!

The Speed Learning Video Program which is included FREE with my study book will also help in the short term with short cuts, note taking tips and exam preparation strategies.

The Speed READING Program is also recommended, but if he’s in a panic with exams, it might be best to buy it and let him decide when he has time to practice. The sooner he starts speed reading, the sooner he will get the benefits of faster reading. The time he takes to LEARN he is still READING = there is no time lost. It’s not like he needs to do something else – he will only get faster and faster with no disadvantage beyond the 1 hour video he needs to watch.


My son is coming home for 3 weeks (from UK Boarding School) shortly.  He is
due to sit his FINAL IB EXAMS at the beginning of May 2009.  I know he has
been working HARD but is still concerned about some aspects of his 6
subjects.  Would your “Best Grades” product be too late to be of any
practical use to him or would it be of significant help?  Also, does this
course require a lot of learning of techniques which ultimately takes time
away from valuable revision?

I would appreciate an honest reply at your earliest convenience.

Thank you

How To Study Less

Today’s post is from Rodney Alexander, an undergraduate accounting student who has a 4.0 GPA which is OUTSTANDING and want to know how my e-book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” can help him have a life beyond the endless hours of study… Here are my suggestions:


Hello Dr. Dussault,

I am a junior in the undergraduate accounting program at my university.  I am planning to attend the graduate program to earn my MSA when I finish undergraduate next year.  I currently have a 4.0 GPA but spend a lot of my time studying and have trouble squeezing  social life, girlfriend, and work into my schedule.  In what ways will your product add value to my academic and social life?

Thank you,
Rodney Alexander


Study Tip #1: Learn To Speed Read

I chose the title of my book specifically to address this issue – it’s not about getting the best grades, it’s all about doing it WITH LESS EFFORT.

The first tip is to learn to Speed Read. If you can read 2, 3 or 4 times faster than you do now, you are going to gain FREE TIME to go out and have fun with your girlfriend or boyfriend. When I was studying for my Ph.D. – and this is all on my product information page…

I was speed reading 6 times FASTER than my colleagues, that meant that if I read for 3 hours on Friday night, my colleagues were spending 18 hours – that’s all day Saturday and all day Sunday reading the SAME MATERIAL.

Rodney, if you are NOT speed reading, you need to get my e-book PLUS get my Speed Reading Video Program.

Study Tip #2: Learn To Speed Learn

In my book I explain this and then supplement it with the FREE BONUS Speed Learning Video that is INCLUDED with my e-book. If you are getting As or High Distinctions, you know how to learn, you just need to do it FASTER.

Some people need to learn HOW TO LEARN, but if you’re getting TOP grades now, you just need BE QUICKER, more efficient.

In my e-book I explain how you currently do this and how you can SYSTEMISE what you do step-by-step to do it better and FASTER. Within 2-3 weeks, you will be able to get the SAME RESULT with a 5 to 10 hour reduction in TIME SPENT if you are an undergraduate student in Accounting.

Study Tip #3: Learn How YOU Learn

Rodney, I don’t know what your learning style is, but whatever it is – there are 3 or 4 things you MUST do to improve HOW you study to get better results FASTER. In my e-book, I show YOU how to find out WHICH STYLE YOU have and what to do to get better results, faster.

It’s NOT ‘one size fits all’ solution.

Every single person has their own style and patterns that THEY need to get the BEST RESULTS. The trick is to find YOUR SECRET COMBINATION so you can unlock the genius that’s within you.

Study Tip #4: How To Understand And Remember More

Most students waste 25 to as much as 50% of their study time memorising stuff for exams. That is ludicrous! In my e-book I teach you the SYSTEM to make sure you are never caught cramming at the last minute trying to learn and remember stuff.

This works in ALL SUBJECTS AT ALL LEVELS. I should know – I have degrees in Pure and Applied Science, Engineering, Business, Psychology, Law, Corporate Governance and Taxation.

The strategies are simple and easy – but they need practice.

Rodney, with a 4.0 GPA, you don’t need better grades, you need to STOP WASTING TIME and get the SAME GRADES with a lot less effort!

My e-book and video programs GUARANTEE you’ll be able to spend more time with your girlfriend and your firends within 8 weeks – or ClickBank will refund you 100%.

But honestly Rodney – think about it this way – you’re getting straight As. I have products that GUARANTEE RESULTS – why not give it a try?

Hundreds of students with WORSE GRADES than you are now getting the SAME GRADES as yours with less effort… Why not join them today/tonight?

I would love to hear you become one of my success stories – I can almost read it now…

“Dear Dr. Dussault,

I wrote to you 6 months ago. Struggling to reduce my study time. I was apprehensive, but decided with your blog post response it was worth a shot. WOW! What a difference your book and videos made! I can now read 3 times faster than I used to, I’ve retained my 4.0 GPA and study about 10 hours less a week – going out with my girlfriend every weekend (Psst! she is also using your strategies and went from a 3.2 to 3.8 GPA!) I, no make that WE, can’t thank you enough.

I wish I had learned these strategies at the BEGINNING of my Accounting degree! Now that I have this skill – I might decide to do a double-major for my Master’s Degree – I’ll keep you posted!

Sincerely Yours,


How To Speed Read Faster

Pastry Chef Goes Back to School After 35 years…

Today’s post is from a Pastry Chef in Melbourne. “Speed reading is starting to help me especially with concentration and comprehension, I read through the pages of the document about Host Beneficiaries the other night real easy, normally I am not a reader and would not get through it.”

“The study book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” has great power for me, it has been thirty five years since I left school and now I want to start studying again.

Also I will try something I know nothing about and that is computers that will be fun!

This is from a ‘baker in Melbourne’… If you are looking to improve your career or your business – learning new stuff is essential. Whether you buy my study book or speed reading video program or BOTH, once you start, you won’t want to stop because getting the Best Business Results With The Least Amount Of Effort gets to be addictive!

I say this because I want you to have the GIFT of SPEED READING because it will change your life as you beging to explore and discover new thoughts, ideas and possibilities!

Stop Subvocalising To Speed Read

If you aren’t reading more than 400 to 500 words per minute, I’ll tell you why…

First, you need to purchase my Speed Reading Video Program, because what I’m about to say isn’t going to make much sense unless you know the technique of SPEED READING…

Once you have purchased it, you’ll understand that the #1 reason you haven’t doubled or tripled your reading speed is because you are still sub-vocalising.
