the one for your success

“Study smarter not harder” can be called as my school mentor. Written by Kevin Paula student service professional, this self-improvement book is a key to my success at school. Long story short, if you want to make an improvement on your academic performance, you should follow instructions shown in this book. In my case, “Study smarter not harder “helps me ace all tests and remain as a top student for three years in a row.

Do it right the first time

Every year I try to learn a few new methods of "remembering" more of what I study. Usually I've gone to the memory books. However, you soon realize that mnemonics alone aren't enough. The real task is to figure out better ways of integrating new material with the knowledge you already have. Until reading Study Smarter, Not Harder the best I had come across was Kenneth Higbee's Your Memory. Higbee is excellent on mnemonics and has a very nice chapter on study skills. Kevin Paul takes the opposite tack, having very little on memorization but much on the study environment, the psychology of the learner, and specific approaches to various methods of study. Paul's entire books is filled with practical advice, very little is presented and left as abstraction. If you want to learn to maximum potential the first time, study this book first!

The Best Purchase You Could Make!

I bought this book for my younger brother who is a freshman in high school. I was originally interested in "What Smart Students Know" by Adam Robinson for my brother. I ended up buying that book and this book, "Study Smarter, Not Harder", based on all the reviews that I had read. Boy, were all those reviews right!!! I read the book myself to help my brother out, and I found it beneficial for myself as well! It is an easy, quick read. The principles are simple and easy to apply to your own life to make changes little by little. And what Kevin Paul talks about in this book makes sense! I am especially impressed by all the evidence and research he mentions that supports his suggestions in learning. And I know I tend to be a skeptic. And with the little time that I have, as a medical student, this was well worth it. I definitely believe that everyone has "genius potential." Schools and teachers are realizing that there are multiple intelligences. However, it seems that our education system has not uniformly embraced this fact and adjusted the system in a way for our students to better learn. In sum, Learn how to learn for high school, college, medical school, law school, a new skill for your job, for a career change! With all exponentially increasing amount of information that is out these days, learning how to learn will be one of the most important skills to have in this day and age. So, Before you read any other study book, READ THIS BOOK! Get this book for your child, your sister, your brother,... yourself!

Relaxation, Focus, Time Management

This book is truly excellent and completely common sense, but most people would not think of the strategies it provides. It's all about maximizing efficiency by relaxing, focusing, and using time wisely. Making goals and uniting all the intelligences. Simple, but effective. I recommend this book for 18+, too much younger won't be able to grasp a lot of it and it seems to focus on college students.

A Must-Have for All Aspiring Achievers!

This book was a wake-up call for me. Thanks to Kevin Paul, i managed to score straight As for my PMR(a very important exam for 15-year-olds in Malaysia). The exam was in October, but even in May, i was still underprepared. Truthfully, i lost the momentum to study, and i fooled myself by pretending that the exam was 'at the end of the year',little did i know that it wasonly 5 months till October. When i bought this book, (with hope that it would motivate me), it really made me realize how important education was. The study tips and techniques that was shown in the book, gave me hope that it was still possible for me to excel in my exam. Right after i finished reading this book, i planned a study schedule for myself, and did everything that Kevin Paul advised students to do. I discovered the miracles of Mind Maps and realized how it had made studying FUN for me, as well as increasing my understanding in a particular topic. I made coloured note cards, and used colourful pens to memorize important terminologies. I also used the power of the subconscious mind by reciting affirmations to myself five times a day to increase my self-confidence and truly believing that 'I Can Do It!'I am still practising what i have learnt from this book. Now that i enjoy studying, i don't mind sacrificing hours of my free time to learn new things because i know studying can be FUN when i study the SMART way, not the HARD way!Thanks, Kevin Paul, you're truly a blessing to me!

Great book with practical advice that you can use.

This is a great book! It explains how people learn and how to take advantage of your natural abilities. The stragedies it gives are practical and it is a good book to read if you have problems with procrastination.
