We’re all different. We all process information differently. No two people store information in their brain exactly the same. And the way you retrieve information from your memory banks won’t be the same as anyone else on the planet! I hope Genius Material helps you to get a better understanding of how you do these things the best – the quickest, the most effective way for you – so that you can get the best results possible.
Imagine setting some time aside to revise, knowing that you’re going to make progress, swiftly and easily. Well, that’s how it can be for you – whatever topic you’re learning – from now on, and forever – because once you’ve established an efficient way to learn, you’ll be able to use it any time in the future.
And as you discover how much easier it can be, you might begin to wonder about your future – what opportunities might open up for you, what career choices you might make, what you might begin to contemplate now that exams have become an opportunity to demonstrate what you can achieve.
I urge you to thoroughly test the Genius Material advice and notice what works well for you. That way you will develop your own toolbox of techniques specific to you. When I work with people individually, that’s exactly what we do. First they do the questionnaire that our members do, and then we practise the specific techniques that are likely to work well for them to see which ones are best and in what circumstances.
From the point of getting more efficient at revision and finding the whole thing easier and even pleasurable, you need to develop some of your skills beyond where they are now. It might take you a while to train your brain and get the hang of some of the suggestions in Genius Material, because of the way your brain works, but it will be well worth your while.
It goes without saying that the more you practise the easier it will get. But in actual fact, the more you practise, the less time you’ll have to spend doing it, and the faster and faster you’ll find yourself advancing through your revision. It really is worth putting in the effort now while you’re learning how to do this.
So you’ve got everything you need in Genius Material to improve your exam scores, to maximise your efficiency when revising, and above all, to enjoy the process. Give our programme a really good try and you can look forward to feeling more confident and feeling really good about yourself.
I know you’re busy and so, just to make absolutely sure that no stone is left unturned, as part of the membership, I’ve devised this series of training videos, designed to go through the material you need, carefully, step by step.
In addition, as a member of our membership site you’ll benefit from more helpful advice as well as my personal attention to help you with your own particular challenges.
I’m trying to save you time, not create more work for you.
When you become a member of Genius Material, the sort of advice you can expect includes:
Not using a gorgeous brand spanking new notebook for your notes. You’ll be tempted to concentrate on keeping it looking beautiful and you won’t want to tear pages out and start again. Yes! I’ll be recommending you do that! Make your mind up now – do you want to have a beautiful notebook or do you want to improve your exam grades?
You’ll need lots and lots of blank A4 paper. Expect there to be lots of wastage, as you experiment and throw away earlier drafts. You must be prepared to keep rewriting notes this way. If it bothers you that you’re getting through so much paper, arrange to plant a tree. There are plenty of ways you can do this and many organisations that will help you. Just type into Google: “plant a tree” and you’ll be away…
Use loose paper, in a ring binder so you can easily replace pages as you need to, because your revision notes will develop and change as you use them, so it’s important to be able to throw away old drafts as you develop your own system that works best.
There are three reasons that you might not be able to remember something you’ve attempted to learn. Here are two of them:
- You’ve not spent enough time allowing the material to ‘sink in’ and for your brain to make a pattern from it.
- The way you’ve made your notes doesn’t quite do the job. They’re not in the form that your brain likes. So make some new notes, making a feature of the tricky stuff so that it sticks in the mind. For example you might put it in a bright colour, make that part bigger on the page or highlight it. You’ll notice that the next time you test yourself it’s much easier to remember – because you’ve made a feature of it. Don’t be afraid to write the whole page again in a new way.
The brain remembers unusual things – so make the difficult things unusual on the page, in other words, make them stand out.
The whole idea of the Genius Material programme is to make your revision much easier and more effective, because most people begin to actually enjoy their revision once they know the best way to do it. And as you’ll see, it’s how you make the notes and what you do with them that can make all the difference.
