Here's how I study:

1. I first ground myself

2. Channel the essence (similar to Einstein Factor or Mirror someone knowledgeable) of what it is I want to learn....While listening brainwave at 6hz.

3. I anchor the state

4. Stretch/exercise eye muscles

5. Pre-read the material or flip through to get a feel for the book...

6. Photo-read

7. Speed-read

8. Allow time to absorb.

9. Consciously and Unconsciously apply "Mega Memory" by Kevin Treadeau

10. Trust you concisously and unconscioustly learned something

11: Next day.... Quick review, Quick activation (from photo-read), Quicky Speed Read

Note: I take breaks every 30 minutes, rest and cover my eyes with the palms of my hand for 5 mintues....Know what study environment you study best in (a study environment best resembling the test taking environment is best)....

During my last semester of college, I got severely ill, and missed 1/3 of the semester (in several Required courses), during the week of finals - I had to makeup several exams and still take the finals....This study routine saved my life....I'm glad I took the time to study all those listed above.....In general, my grades also improved....

I didn't learn the Einstein Factor (don't have the books, would you please recommend some?). I use XtremeMind's Accelerated Learning CD from EP3, it's an alpha wave track. Produces a calming effect & bring me a peaceful, non-lethargic state when I'm drowsy.

I use Mind Maps (from Tony Buzan, Inegmar Svantesson etc) to summarize what I read with keywords & associations, plus memory techniques from Dominic O'brien. No special reading methods though. Do they work? Please recommend your speed-reading books.

I re-draw the Mind Maps & practise the technical experiments to reinforce understanding (I.T. subjects).

You're one of the few who seem to be successful with Photoreading. I read the book & practised only the basics (tangerine method). It does seem to work, on & off.

Quote:
The ebooks I have :

1971 Speed Memory - Tony Buzan
1986 Use Your Memory - Tony Buzan
1988 Super Creativity - Tony Buzan
1994 The Mind Map Book - Tony Buzan
2004 Learning Maps and Memory Skills, 2nd Edition - Inegmar Svantesson
1993 How To Develop A Perfect Memory - Dominic O'Brien
How to Develop A Super-Power Memory - Harry Lorayne
The PhotoReading Whole Mind System - Paul Scheele


The Mind Maps are a good find. They totally re-invent my notes-taking. I use it for studying, planning my work, etc, almost everything now. It's the "note-making" experience that reinforces association & understanding.

Still haven't found a suitable reading method & memory technique for technical subjects.

I sleep at 6pm, wake up at 12 midnight, study till 8am & work at 9am. Sleep immediately after I come back from work. It's a 18 hour cycle!

Thanks.

Einstein Factor, I heard good things about it but I never follow though the whole exercises....Mirroring is a better exercise....or even better, you know psychic seduction, where you become the person in everyway, do that, but with Einstein or your teacher or who ever you need......

The eye exercise I learn was from both EyeQ (speedreading software) and from chinese tradition....You start by rolling your eye's counter-clockwise 7 times, then clockwise 7 times....diagnally....moving the eyes tracing a figure 8, then in an infinite symbol......move your eyes back and forth horizontally really fast...do the same vertically....rub palms together and cover the eyes for a few minutes but not touching.....Most people have weak eye mucsles --> bad eye sight, and they find it difficult/painful to do the exercise, so if you do it - take it easy....start small ie. small cicles, figure 8 etc, gradually work your way to almost full vision size....

Speed-reading is worth the investment...I like the EyeQ software...Evelyn woords 7 day speed-reading book is good....but basically they're all the same....Photoreading not as good as it sounds, but it does allow you to get the gist of what your reading (which is good if you don't have a lot of time), speed-reading reinforces what you photoread......The tangerine exercise works good for me....

Any memory work is worth the investment....memory books are all the same (I read a lot of them including Harry Lorayne book) but I find Kevin Tredeau "Mega Memory" format to be the best and the price should be cheap....

Sleep is essential for memory.....I avoid it when possible but cyclic sleep pattern works well particulary during finals week (study 2-4 hours, sleep 30-60 minutes, and then repeat, the time varies depending on your scheduel of course).....

***The thing I learned about speed-reading is that you have to work at maintaining it, you never lose it permanently (it's like riding a bike), also it takes a few mintues to warm-up to a good reading speed....so don't get discourage if your slow in the beginning....

A simpe exercise for speed-reading is to hum/say a mantra/ or affirmation while trying to read as fast as you can with comprehension at the same time....once you get a hang of it, you can eventually stop the humming etc....It's almost like doing a meditation and reading at the same time.....

I get into the zone. the paralminals from LSC or Accelerated learning from xtrememind do this for me.

Then I read fast- really fast without analyzing or criticizing the material.

It helps before doing a major presentation.

Then I do rapid mind mapping to get a data dump.

Then I cluster the related data into cores.

Then it's at this point I engage my left brain and start making a structured paper/reviewer/report out of the information store.

Never failed!

One good method I learned from Photoreading is to let your eyes skim the lines of a book, focusing onc clusters of words at a time AND NEVER GOING BACK.

The problem with most people is they hover over phrases they didn't understand, over and over again. This confuses the mind and slows down the learning process.

for those who don't like youtube i've summarised tehm for me:


Tech one:
make scrolls out of textbooks (but it's cheaper to use photocopies to make them Wink)
----------
tech two:
turn book upside down - skim through it rapidly - look at the spine (no words)
in 8 positions (down left to upper right, without doingi t right infront of your face)
---------
tech three:
hand book ontop of your palms facing face
book ontop of that
close eyes
build up chi behind eyelids
blink into the middel of the two pages

Do enlighten me old friend how reading a book upside down with my grade 800 specs will speed up my slower-than-molasses reading

Very Happy

johnrice,
I just realized with your Ph.D you would be a wonderful candidate to judge how a chi gen or or rad box or some other pendant would work with enhancing a person's I.Q. or maybe even scoring higher on tests. Have you ever though to combine your acedemic experience with your radionic experience and try to come up with something?

The way I study, and it does not necessarily require any NLP or magical system.



First I find a quiet environment.. that also means an area where it is comfortable as well. Then I relax and take deep breathes or whatever.

1) pre-read to get a feel for the material
2) go back over it with a high lighter.
3) Memorization with repetition and say key points of the material out loud to myself as I visualize what I am thinking about.

4) Flash cards.

5) May need a partner for flash cards

6) If there is a 3rd partner or more for a study group.. We hold a competitive game to see who can get the most answers correct.

The point of this is to make learning fun... when you are actually more interested or "emotionally" involved with the material its easier to remember it.

7) Study with a girl and play a game that scores when you get the right answers.

I don't use any fancy techniques, but I find that the answer is: making mistakes. But what does that mean?

It means that I do the usual: skim the material, thumb through it, etc. Next I just read the material (semi fast reading), not really study it in depth.
Next people usually will study it in depth. Instead, I gather practice exams, practice questions, etc. Anything that is a challenge. I try to answer the questions. Since you have not really studied the material you will get a lot of them wrong. Now this is the trick, at least for me. I hate getting stuff wrong, so in this annoyed and thus highly motivated state I lookup the subject of the question and study it in depth, which now takes far less time then when you study it "because you have to", hoping to prove I was right after all Laughing

In fact studying with a question or goal in mind makes it easier and more efficient. Your mind is in more of an analytical mode, instead of this linear intaking of dry facts. You can do this in groups of course, but I never got the hang of that, too slow for me.

Not sure if this is a recommend practice, but it got me my masters degree without failing a single exam Wink
