Are you nervous about an upcoming tests? Do you spend way too much time studying? Have you spent more time than you care to think about trying to learn how to study more efficiently only to find that nothing works?

I can help!

This course works. It is backed by actual scientific studies done to investigate how people learn, how they remember, and how they utilize time. I have taken what these studies have to say and combined it with over 35 years of personal experience to develop study techniques that will allow you to study less and learn more.

This course is actually three courses in one. I cover brain function, time management, and study skills each in their own module so you aren't faced with a massive overhaul of your study practices. You can incorporate one technique, see the effect it has on your study time and your performance, and go on to incorporate the rest of the techniques one at a time.

I provide a broad range of information in this course, and that will be satisfactory for most of you, but if you would like to take an advanced course or read some specialized material, you're more than welcome to do so and we'll provide information on additional resources.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The course consists of 39 lectures and nine quizzes, all will references for additional resource material. In addition, there are several self-evaluation tests designed to help you understand your abilities so you can target areas of weakness for extra work.

The length of the lectures varies from two minutes to five minutes and it's possible to watch them all in two hours. I recommend, however, that you do not do so. The way to get the most out of this course is to take each module separately and incorporate it into your study routine before moving on to the next module.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The course is aimed primarily at high school students, but will be of use to anyone who wants to improve their study skills.

I guarantee that you will see some results immediately after applying these techniques. You'll want to continue through the whole course, and many of the techniques require diligent practice, but you will be able to see the results right from the beginning and feel your confidence rise as you progress.

This course will teach you:

  • How to recognize what is important and what isn't.
  • How to manage your time.
  • How to take notes effectively and efficiently.
  • How to improve your ability to remember facts, figures, and dates.
  • How to effectively utilize the resources you have.
  • The basics of deeper learning.

Most of all, this course will teach you how to be the best student you can be by finding the right balance, using the right methods, and working with the right motivation and the right timing.
