When Enough is NOT Enough...


Do you have this situation:
1.  Spent a lot of time going through the text book/reference book.
2.  Memorizing the facts and figures of the topic you studied.
3.  Feel confident, really confident, of answering any question on that particular topic.
4.  Almost 100% ready for the exam.

Tut, tut...
You cannot answer some the questions asked in the exam !!
To make it worse, you tend to write nonsense while answering some of the questions...

When getting the marks/papers back after the short holidays..., hu, hu, hu....
You obtained a mere 40% .., just a Pass !!
What went wrong??
WHAT WENT WRONG???
Di mana salah nya..???

I'll tell you why......

1.   Exam is NOT about memorizing facts and figures !!!
What's the point of memorizing things...?  Those days are gone... These days, formulae are given...
2.   Mode of study these days is NOT about sitting on the chair in your room (on lying on the bed) and reading text books or reference books brought at the Book Stores.... These days, you change ideas with your friends and have open discussions on related topics.

If you keep on studying alone in your room, doing the same WRONG APPROACH..., you'll get about the same marks (40%) all the time!!!
3.  You MUST try out questions by questions, again and again... The key word is = WRITE !!! Not READ !
Trying out questions and practicing the answers of questions IS a better way of studying....

Try to change your style of studying....
Just do it !!

I rest my case...
Have a nice day.....
