Brain Hacks to Becoming Straight A Student- Cheat Sheet Study Less Score High - Unconventional Proven Strategies That work! Look around you; I am sure you know a few "good students" around you, maybe you are friends with a few of them, and in your mind, you think. 1. Good students are born with that special talent and skills 2. God made them smart 3. It is very easy for them to Ace every test I believed those three statements so much that I almost gave up and when I was in 8th grade, I failed in school so miserably that I didn't even get to go to 9th grade, and had to stay behind. It was an embarrassment like none other. The mere shame of staying behind was eating me alive. Just imagine how I felt! I truly had a rude awakening after that. It was like I woke up from a deep sleep and suddenly realize up until then, I really never opened my mind and my eyes at the same time to comprehend what I was studying because when I was reading my eyes were open but my mind was close shut and vice versa. Why? I thought I was not smart enough to understand what I was reading; I thought I was not one of the fortunate ones to be born with that god given extra talent and skills. Boy was I wrong!!! For days I was furious at my own self, I locked myself in my room for days with pure rage and anger, which started to melt into frustrations and sadness. But then I asked myself why do I not understand what I read, is my brain that dull, or maybe I don't have a brain. Seeing me on the verge of collapse, my father took me to meet a person who was a renowned professor at Vanderbilt University. He was well known for his research on "Why some students excel in school." He is my godsend mentor, he showed me the light and opened up my eyes and mind (both at the same time) as he explained why only a few students do exceptionally well in school while rest do not. He answered the three questions I asked you above and said the answers are: 1. No 2. No 3. No Long story short, next final, I scored in the top 5% and was called into the principal's office asking me how I was able to do that. I think he was trying to find out if I was cheating really. Moving on, I never had to look back. My college days weren't as glorious or full of A's, but I did finish my B.S. in Economics with a 3.8 GPA, not bad huh? Well, that landed me a scholarship at the same university(Vanderbilt) for my MBA. From my dark days of 8th grade till I finished my PhD(yes, I did it!), only thing I followed were those strategies and smart tips that my mentor gave me. Now, this book is not about my success but yours, I wrote this book to show you how easy it truly can be to excel in school, as long as we follow a few simple strategies and tips. This book is tailor-made to help you rise to meet the challenges of the college experience, both academically and socially. In this book, you will learn skills that will help you develop a system of habits that will benefit you for the rest of your life. Learn How to: 1. Minimize the time you spend studying. 2. Master techniques to optimize the time invested in studying. 3. Develop and implement great study habits on a consistent basis. 4. Understand that time is a finite resource and therefore needs to be budgeted like any other finite resource. 5. Organize, prioritize and execute every assignment, project, and event on your calendar. 6. Improve your output so you create and turn in grade-A work. 7. Nine amazing tips that worked for me every time So, grab a pen and a sheet of paper. You won't need more than one sheet. Make a note of any strategies, recommendations and skills that don't already come naturally to you. These notes are just for your eyes and your life.
