Student Gets Better Grades

Today’s post is from John Ruiz who wants to share his recent results after buying my study book and applying just 2 strategies. This is the dialogue I had with John…

Hello Dr. Dussault!

I recently bought your study book and after reading it and incorporating only 2 of your strategies I have improved my grades in Math. I scored a 115 A++ on my Honors Algebra 2 test and a 113 A++ on my Honors Pre-calculus test as well. Thank you for your excellent study guide – it will help me not only now, but in the future as well.

Now that’s a great testimonial, but it doesn’t help you does it?

So I asked John what study strategies he used:

Exam Study Tip #1:

First, I used the strategies for identifying exactly what was going to be on my next math test. I paid attention to the subtle hints that the teacher gave about what would be on the test.

Exam Study Tip #2:

I also referred to past exams and found that some of the extra credit problems were taken from the book we use in class. Realizing this, I was able to practice the exact problems that would be on the test and as a result got the highest grade in class on that test — 113. Without those two strateges I would not have scored that well. I used the same two strategies to get a 115 on my other math test ( I take Honors Trig and Alg. 2). I’m exited to try out more strategies and improve exponentially overtime. Thank you.

So there you have it, two simple study tips that will help you get the best grades with the least amount of effort!

How To Speed Read Twice As Fast As You Do Now

This is a new video that I published on YouTube recently. It’s a summary of How To Speed Read which, as a reader of this blog, you know by now is the #1 most important skill you need to acquire to get the best grades with the least amount of effort. 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

Spellcheck your way to better grades

If you are a student studying in a foreign language, one of the best FREE tools to improve your grades is a spellchecker. Run it on everything you do – INCLUDING and ESPECIALLY e-mails so that EVERY TIME a mistake comes up, you will learn the correct spelling.

Some Spellcheckers also do grammar!

Yes, that’s right – Microsoft Word for example checks your grammar…! Check it out in the HELP MENU.

This is a ‘FREE’ Way of getting priceless feedback and one of the ways I teach people to Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort.

I should know, I studied in the only bilingual (French and English Ph.D. Business Administration Program) where questions, answers, discussions and submissions were made in BOTH languages SIMULATENOUSLY.

Sometimes a question was asked in French and answered in English!

Pretty fun stuff if you have the linguistic skills!

Today’s study tip is about IMPROVING those linguistic skills so you get BETTER GRADES. Spelling and grammar counts toward better grades!

By the way, my study book is available as a French Study Book, and Romanian Study Book. It will soon be available in Chinese and Polish!

How Long Does It Take To Get Better Grades?

Loise Roebeck wants to know how long it takes to get better grades – GREAT QUESTION! Of course you know the answer, but your might not know the SOLUTION to make that happen. Today’s post is what I suggest you do once you’ve bought my e-book.

Step #1 To Get Better Grades Faster

Do ALL the exercises in the e-book TODAY/TONIGHT. The longer you wait, the longer it will take. I know this sounds self-evident, but without the exercises, you have NO STARTING POINT.

Step #2 To Get Better Grades Faster

Learn to learn faster with the BONUS Video I include for FREE with my e-book, called the Speed Learning Video Program. Watch the video and get started with as many of the suggestions as you can with the HOMEWORK you have RIGHT NOW. If you are keen, GO BACK a week and re-do your notes and revision using these strategies RIGHT NOW.

Step #3 To Get Better Grades Faster

Learn to Speed Read TODAY/TONIGHT by buying my Speed Reading Video Program so you can double or triple your reading speed THIS WEEK instead of in 2-3 weeks or months from now.

I know you might think this is a sales pitch – but c’mon we’re NOT talking about HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS.

BOTH of these programs (three in fact – the e-book, Speed Learning Video and Speed Reading Video Programs) are LESS THAN THE COST OF A TEXTBOOK.

If the cost is holding you back, I have to be blunt – YOU CAN’T AFFORD to get better grades.

Sorry, go somewhere else and try to get ‘FREE’ stuff on the Internet and come back when you can afford my products.

Does it surprise you that I just said that?

I hope it does. Y’see I work with only the most committed students because they are the ones who’ve had enough and want a better way to study.

They want the same or better results than I’ve produced for myself – which are all documented on my product pages.

But let me tell you something – even though this solution and easy-to-follow system is available to anyone who has access to the Internet – only a select FEW ever step up.

People like Loise who wants to get it done as FAST AS POSSIBLE.

So do what I suggest in my e-book and programs, but do IT NOW.

I have to tell you a story about a motivational seminar I attended with a friend about 15 years ago. At the end of the seminar, I told her that the presenter mentioned 3 books that I had not read. So I proceeded to go buy them. My friend objected adamantly declaring “You can buy them tomorrow”.

No I can’t. I have to buy them NOW so that when I get home (at 9 PM), I can start to read them.

The sense of urgency I create for myself is higher than most people => I get results faster than most people.

Loise, just DO IT TODAY!
