3 Overview

4 4 Source:

5  The true power of the brain comes when  The left and the right hemispheres are combined to work together  How to combine the left and right brain?  Use logic and imagination together  Use mind mapping  How to study efficiently?  Combine high concentration with speed reading, mind mapping and memory techniques 5

6 How to Concentrate for Efficient Studying?

7  Entering a highly-productive state  Known as "flow" (see Mihály Csíkszentmihályi) flow  Known as "relaxed alertness" (Paul Scheele)  High-concentration tips  Quiet place  Background music  Seat and posture  Breathing techniques  Breaks 7

8  Quiet place, without disturbing factors  No people around to distract your attention  Separate room without anyone else  Background music  Classic and baroque improves concentration  Any music for relaxation / meditation will work  Brainwave entrainment / alpha / gamma (link) link  Avoid rap / metal / rock / folk (music with lyrics)  Better without headphones 8

9  Seat and posture  Comfortable seat  Prefer sitting in a chair (with a back)  Straight up, with a desk, not lop-sided  Lean back against the back of the chair  Distance from eyes  Sufficient lighting  Avoid laying in a bed  Take breaks 9

10  Breathing techniques  Help entering a productive state  Improve relaxation  Breaks  Take breaks regularly!  At every minutes  5 minutes  Physical activity  Relax, move, stretch 10

11 Improve You Reading and Comprehension Speed

12  Speed reading  Non-linear reading  Improves the efficiency  Less time + better recall  Slow readers: words / minute  Fast readers: 500, even words / minute  Uses techniques like  Preview  Skimming 12

13  Subvocalization  Internal speech (pronunciation) during the reading  Back-skipping / regression  Repeated reading of the same text  Eye focusing  Focus on single words / letters  Instead on groups of words / phrases / sentences 13

14  Using a pointer  Using a finger or pointer (e.g. pen)  Increase the vision span (field of view)  Focus on groups of words simultaneously 14

15  Preview the text  Start with this to catch the "big picture"  Quickly pass through the text:  Table of contents, titles, subtitles, figures, captions, tables, bold phrases, etc.  Time-boxed  E.g. 3-5 minutes (for 200 pages)  Don't read, just preview the information!  Extract keywords / important phrases 15

16  Skimming  Quickly pass / scan through the text  Try to extract the meaningful info  Try to find what you need  Often used when searching in Internet  Setting goals  Improves the reading efficiency  Keeps reading focused 16

17 A Typical Process StateGoalsPreviewSkim Mind Map

18 1. Enter a state of concentration  Comfort, seat, posture, background music, etc. 2. Set-up goals for reading  Write a few questions to get answered 3. Quickly preview the text  Time boxed: 3-5 minutes for ~ 200 pages 4. Skim through the text  Try to find the answers for your questions 5. Create a mind map 18

19 Live Exercise Following the speed reading typical process read the book "Introduction to Programming with C#" or other technical book for ~ 30 minutes. Introduction to Programming with C#Introduction to Programming with C# StateGoalsPreviewSkim Mind Map

20 How to Remember the Information?

21  How to remember?  Association (with something well known)  Senses: see it, hear it, write it, try it, feel it, …  Principles of memory (by Tony Buzan): 21  Senses  Exaggeration  Rhythm and movement  Colors  Numbering  Symbols  Order and patterns  Attraction  Laughter  Positive thinking

22 1. Speed read the book 2. Create a mind map (very important!) 3. Review the book regularly  After 10 minutes (10 minutes review)  After 24 hours (2-4 minutes review)  After 1 week (2 minutes review)  After 1 month (2 minutes review)  After 6 months (2 minutes review)  After 1 year (2 minutes review) 22

23 Buzan's Organic Study Technique

24 1. Preparation  Тurn over the pages (very quickly)  What you already know? (mind map)  Time and scope (establish a time schedule)  Set-up questions and goals 2. Application  Overview: covers, table of contents, headings  Preview: preface and conclusion chapters  In-view: fast read, skip complex parts  Review: fix the gaps + create mind map 24

25 Paul Scheele's Photo Reading Whole Mind System

26 26

27 Increase the Speed of Watching Video Lessons

28  Perform a quick preview of the video  Scroll through the content for 2-3 minutes  Watch at increased speed  Start with 1.2 x speed  Тhen turn to 1.4 x speed  Тhen turn to 1.6 x speed  Skip uninteresting parts  Skip what you already know or don't find interesting 28
