What if I told you everything you know about how to learn, study and succeed in school was wrong? If you learn like most people, it probably is.
Here are a few truths you might find hard to believe:
* Learning better doesn't require studying more.
* Smart people aren't gifted--they simply have a different strategy (which you can copy).
* Most people have no idea how they learn things. As a result, they can't train themselves to be smart.
Different strategies make a huge difference in results. By using the strategy outlined in Learn More, Study Less, I have:
* Aced University finals with little or no studying.
* Scored first in an advanced inter-province Chemistry exam. Without even being aware I was needed to take the test until five minutes before writing it.
* Read over 70 books each year.
* Scored in the top three percentile for a national exam. Despite never having taken the course being tested.
* Minimized course work to maintain an A average while running a part-time business, presiding over a Toastmasters club, exercising daily and still being able to socialize and party.
I say this not to brag, because my accomplishments are relatively modest. In researching extraordinary learners I've found people who have achieved A averages with triple the full-time course load, memorized entire books and breezed through degree programs designed to fail most people.
I'm telling you this because I believe you can do it too.
