  • Hello Marc

    I was re reading your book and I needed more details about a process you had described in your book page 20-21:

    Here’s the example:

    “I had a Geology course that required a lot of memorization. I had no choice but to focus
    uniquely on memory techniques. So here’s how I went about the process, step-by-step.
    •• I read each chapter.
    •• I read each chapter “quickly” and then re-read it again slowly.
    •• I read each chapter “quickly”. As I re-read it again slowly I would take notes.
    •• I read each chapter “quickly”. As I re-read it again slowly I would take notes very neatly in a separate binder.
    •• I read each chapter “quickly”. As I re-read it again slowly I would take notes in red, very neatly in a separate binder. Why red? It’s a color that helps me remember things visually.

    I read each chapter “quickly”. As I re-read it again slowly I w •• ould take notes in red, write very neatly in a separate binder. I underlined keywords with a ruler and repeated the underlined words to myself.
    •• I read each chapter “quickly” and then as I re-read it again slowly, I would take notes in red, write very neatly in a separate binder. As I underlined keywords with a ruler and repeated the underlined words to myself, I saw myself out on the field, with a hard-hat on, giving a lecture to high school students. Instead of just saying
    them to myself, I said them out loud. When I did this my mother thought I was talking on the phone….!

    1- Do you mean that you re-rewrite it at least 6 times?
    2- If we have to learn mathematics or a new language instead of memorization courses, which adjustments can we make to improve our learning. Sometimes I have so many and longer chapters that I can’t re write them six times

    Thank you

    • What I was showing is the PROCESS of IMPROVEMENT – the last explanation is the final one – I did not do that EACH TIME. I was explaining how I evolved my technique over 6 iterations and stages of improvement. Once I knew the BEST way to study (the last version) that’s what I did. I think you misunderstood what was written… Sorry about the confusion.

      Learning math or a new language each take a DIFFERENT APPPROACH – that’s what I teach in my study book. Learn what works for you for each subject.

      Math is all about SOLVING problems, learning language is about learning some rules of grammar and then MEMORISING a lot of new words – what helps me are VISUAL DICTIONARIES… Once I SEE the item and the word, I can more easily recall it later – of course IMMERSION also helps – ONLY SPEAK that language and force yourself to learn the words you need – best strategy – go on vacation and try to ONLY speak that language!

      Onward and upward!
