Does Cramming Work?

Cramming – Don’t Do It!

Time can really get to you when you are trying to study. Many people wait until the last minute and they end up trying to cram all the information in within a few hours.

So, this brings up an important issue – DOES CRAMMING ACTUALLY WORK?

When people are preparing for a test or exam, often cramming will turn into a habit that is overused. Many students resort to cramming for a variety of reasons self-justifying our behaviour with the lie that we have busy schedule… Am I right?

In many cases, cramming can be RISKY, since it ends up CAUSING STRESS FOR NO GOOD REASON!

As such, you end up making your brain work even harder in a shorter period of time, than it would if you were doing routine study. If you cram on a frequent and regular basis, it can actually become a HEALTH RISK.

One of my engineering school classmates had to drop out because of study-related, stress-induced health problems thinking he could take some time off and come back – that didn’t happen. Once out of school, he ended up ‘taking it easy’ with a less ambitious crowd and well, the rest is history. Not only did he not get back to Engineering, he never stepped back into a university classroom.

When possible, you should definitely use other methods of studying – other than cramming.

Not sure where to find great ideas? Consider reading my revolutionary learning e-book “Get Better Grades with the Least Amount of Effort.” It offers a lot of helpful knowledge, proven study tips, techniques and strategies that can help you study more effectively and get better grades.

SO DOES CRAMMING EVER WORK?

When you are healthy, well rested and don’t have a lot of “other stresses” in your life, the brain may deal quite well with a bit of cramming that occurs in the last minutes or hours of study before an important exam or quiz.

However, in most cases, if it works at all, you usually only end up with GRADES THAT ARE AVERAGE, instead of the BEST GRADES you could achieve if you studied more effectively.

One of the main problems with cramming is that you never get a great grasp of all the information and the relationship groups of information may have with each other – those inter-relationships are usually what teachers put in the exam!

Cramming can also lead to CONFUSION. Sometimes it can make information you already know even more confusing. You’ll also find that it’s hard to put the facts in your long-term memory as you are probably dealing with FATIGUE and FRUSTRATION as well.

If you don’t want to put your mind through all this, then make sure you avoid cramming for your exams and is you DO cram, you use my strategies to make the best of it!

It doesn’t matter whether you are studying in high school, college or business. If you are looking for ways to study more effectively it’s well worth checking out my ebook “Get Better Grades with the Least Amount of Effort.”

Onward and upward!

Study SMARTER and LESS rather than HARDER to get the BEST GRADES

Today’s post is courtesy of Jennifer F. who asked the following two questions via e-mail.

How long does the system take to complete? Can I share it to other computers in my home once I get it?
Thank you. Jennifer F.

Question #1: How long does the system take to complete?

Get the BEST GRADES With The LEAST Amount Of EFFORT” is a SYSTEM that starts with an e-book that takes most people less than 1 hour to read. The tips, techniques and tools revealed are so easy to implement that a fifth grader could put them into practice IMMEDIATELY.

The SYSTEM is structured for each person to OPTIMISE their own study patterns which means every person will find his/her own solutions EFFORTLESSLY, and each one will be DIFFERENT. What Jennifer does to increase her grades will NOT work for Janet or Jack.

That is the beauty of the SYSTEM – you will find what works BEST FOR YOU, even as quickly as while you read the book.

But to answer Jennifer’s excellent question – the SYSTEM takes only minutes of attention to PLAN, TRACK and MONITOR what you’re currently doing. Within the first week of using just a handful of the strategies, you’ll start to see IMMEDIATE results.

Many people get results BEFORE they even finish reading the book BECAUSE they do the exercises.

In fact, when you buy the book, you’ll have access to BONUS materials and techniques for SPEED LEARNING and SPEED READING that will further enhance your results.

If you have a test or exam coming up and you apply just 2 or 3 strategies in the book, you’ll see INSTANT results on that exam. You’ll be able to REMEMBER more and UNDERSTAND more than you did before you started the SYSTEM.

That being said, this is a SYSTEM that you can fine tune over and over again. Most people want to get BETTER grades and are willing to spend MORE TIME to get them, and THEN start to reduce their time spent studying. That totally makes sense to me – GET THE RESULTS NOW and then reduce the cost/investment to get the SAME and better rewards AFTER you’ve figured out what works and what doesn’t.

So the answer to Jennifer’s first question is that it takes about an hour to read the e-book and then only minutes to apply the strategies SYSTEMATICALLY one at a time – as your courses and semester develops.

If you are a good note taker, you might want to focus on EXAMS, QUIZZES and TESTS.

If you you’re good at EXAMS, you might want to REDUCE the time it takes to MEMORISE and LEARN stuff the first time…

Whatever it is that you need to focus on, it takes MINUTES for you to implement the strategies and they will start to save you time within the first week – GUARANTEED.

Jennifer’s second question is also very good—

Question #2: Can I share it to other computers in my home once I get it?

The “Get the BEST GRADES With The LEAST Amount Of EFFORT” System STARTS with an e-book that is a PDF file that is sent to you IMMEDIATELY when you place your order and you can open and read on any computer and share with family members. Because this is my intellectual property, it’s not to be given to others freely. That is stealing and when you do that, the Universe has a way of punishing that kind of behaviour… I talk about harnessing the unlimited power of the universe in the book and in subsequent elements of the SYSTEM.

The SYSTEM is comprised of BONUSES and additional components that you will receive access to automatically.

Each one is designed to ensure that you KEEP improving your grades. Some are focused on SPEED LEARNING while others on SPEED READING.

These are all delivered electronically and can be accessed on any computer regardless if you’re at home, school or work.

There you go, two GREAT QUESTIONS.

Onward and upward!

P.S.
Get the BEST GRADES With The LEAST Amount Of EFFORT” starts with buying the e-Book. NOTHING will change unless you take action.

This SYSTEM is GUARANTEED to work – No one who has read the book and applied the strategies has failed – NO ONE.

All you need to do is trust the process, invest this small amount and see what happens. I personally GUARANTEE you can BET BETTER GRADES plus I know you can do it with less effort.

Without diverting into a speed reading discussion, imagine if you could read 2 or 3 times faster – which I teach in one of the SYSTEM COMPONENTS…

I am sure you’d agree it’s LESS effort to read 3 hours of material in 1 hour…

I can teach you to do that, but won’t unless you buy the first component of my SYSTEM – “Get the BEST GRADES With The LEAST Amount Of EFFORT” It’s about the price of a Music CD with a FULL MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE.

If it’s not worth it to you to get better grades THIS SEMESTER, then don’t worry about it. Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t worry about the fact that you could go to bed earlier, be less stressed and get better looking dates as your grades improve AND you have more time to socialise, have fun and party WITHOUT compromising your grades.

Have a problem studying, taking exams or writing term papers?

Post a comment and I’ll make some suggestions…

Consider it a ‘private tutoring lesson’…

A lesson that everyone gets to learn from.

Try to be as specific as you can – saying that you have trouble taking exams is not specific, saying that you’re not good at essay exams is better, saying that you run out of time writing essay exams is even better.

Go on, give me a challenge…

I’m here to help you get better grades with the least amount of effort!

P.S.
I know you’re committed to increasing your GPA. I know that because you’re here, reading this.

To help you, you have to help yourself. Do the exercises I suggest and watch what happens.

This first exercise takes 5 minutes and 6 seconds… Is that too much to ask to learn an explosively powerful technique to improve your study skills?

I think not.

But then again I’m biased. You’ve seen the results I’ve produced for myself and others…

I constantly focus on what I know but don’t know I know…

I ask myself the ‘Million Dollar Question” —

“I know I don’t know, but if I did know, what am I doing that is working that I don’t know I’m doing RIGHT?”

Ask yourself this question and start the dialogue with me on this blog by posting your comments so I can HELP YOU GET BETTER GRADES WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF EFFORT.
