Acing an exam studying in 3 days

Ever found yourself a few days before an exam without even having started studying?!
Maybe you’ve been busy working, or have had things come up, or you simply be-long to that big chunk of students who don’t like to study much, and hope for a lucky break on the day of the exam.

Well, I do not belong to any of the above categories, in fact I have always had the opposite problem: I studied too much.

Whatever your way of preparing (or not preparing) is, the feature that almost all categories of people have in common is the lack of organization.

Yes, even in the latter case there is something wrong: it is certainly not good to prepare an exam by studying for three months.
I’m not saying it’s bad, but it’s certainly not very useful.

If I study three months to give a three-hour exam I am saying that I have “wasted” three months of my life, which I could have dedicated to other activities, to my family, to myself …

On the contrary, if I am lazy or a loafer, I find myself on the last day praying I pass the exam thanks to who knows what divinity … this is also an extremely useless extreme, because – if I don’t pass it – I’ll have to wait for the next round or exam session to be able to give it once more, wasting even more time.

Yeah, in the end it’s all a matter of time.
It’s what we no longer know how to manage, and it’s what we should all learn instead.

And it is precisely from this defect, from the fact that I could no longer bear to waste hours on books, that I decided to give it a break!
And the solution did not take long to arrive: I’m talking about Three-dimensional Reading.

I had no idea what it was, but I wanted to find out.

I looked up some information, attended a course and the results were quick to arrive … there was nothing more useful to achieve my goal.

I managed to go from preparing 1 exam in 3 months to preparing it in 3 days!
And as if that wasn’t good enough, I didn’t pass the exam with the minimum grade … but it was the first 30 I took in my entire university career!

This was the first of many successes, in fact I prepared all my subsequent exams with this method, and they always went great!

When I talked to some classmates about it, the answers were basically two:

  • About 90% of them did not believe that I had studied in such a short time, and that knew so many things
  • Approximately 10% of them have instead decided to know more about this topic, because they understood that if an ordinary person can do something like that, then everyone can do it

And the secret is just that: each one of us has potential and abilities that we don’t know about.
At the same time, we all have the opportunity to discover them if we trust what our heart tells us, knowing that, worst case scenario, we have learned something new without having lost anything.
