Hi guys…

If you want to watch the first members only video in the 24 part How To Study Bootcamp course, just click the link below and enter the password… exams

01 Intro | How To Study Bootcamp


I’m only letting 500 students into the course so I can provide a high level of support (we’re already up to almost 400 members). Once I open the course up again for new members, it’ll be $19.95 per month instead of the current low $9.95 so make sure you don’t miss out at this low monthly price.

See you in Bootcamp!




The #1 Mistake Students Make

April 24, 2009 – 7:52 pm

Hi guys…

Want to know the #1 mistake students make when they’re studying for exams?

Then head on over to Exam Blueprint and watch a video I’ve put together which explains a huge mistake you’re probably making right now when you’re studying.

Correcting this mistake could be the difference between passing and failing. It was for me!

See you over there!




Join How To Study Bootcamp

Hi guys…

There’s been such a huge response to the videos I made for you about how to change the way you study for exams that I decided to create a whole 24 part video course showing you in detail all the actual steps I followed to get A’s in my exams.

All those videos are now inside the members area of How To Study Bootcamp.

The only reason I decided to create a whole course for you was because of the amazing feedback I received from you guys about the first bunch of videos I made. I had no idea they would generate so much interest and change the way so many students were studying for their exams and I thank you all for your interest and encouragement.

I just know you’re going to love all the new videos I’ve made for you because the one’s you’ve already seen are just the tip of the iceberg. They were just a small part of my whole study system and even they managed to have a huge effect on many of you.

Since you’ve been with me from the beginning, I’m letting you know about this course first and I’ve kept the membership cost as cheap as possible to start with. After you’ve all had a chance to sign up (probably a few weeks) I’ll be putting the cost up significantly since I’ve spent a lot of time making the videos.

Once the 24 part course is finished I’ll be making lots more videos about how you can ace your exams, so you can stay a member as long as you want.

Click the picture on the right to find out more.

I’m also restricting the number of students I let into the membership because my time is limited and I want to be able to provide good support for all the members. Too many and things could get out of hand.

So I’ll see you over in How To Study Bootcamp OK?

Hi guys…

Just a reminder that if you want to stay in touch and keep getting updates about any new videos I’ll be making for you, then head on over to my Facebook Page at…

I can almost guarantee that once you’ve seen all the videos (including the one’s I’m still making for you), and implemented what I’m saying in the way you study, your exam results are going to improve dramatically.

So go to my Facebook Page and click "Become a fan" in the top left corner (you’ll need to sign up if you’re not already a Facebook member). Once you do you’ll be notified whenever I make a new video for you.

See you there!


Moving To Facebook

June 11, 2008 – 12:20 am

Lots of students have been contacting me and telling me that they haven’t been getting my emails about any new videos I’ve been making. Either their friends told them or they just happened to check the blog and found a new video had been posted.

Apparently lots of emails are mistaken as spam by various internet service providers… even when they’re not.

Consequently… I’ve decided to move all my contact with you over to Facebook so I can keep in touch with everyone more reliably. It’ll be a much better way for us to talk to each other and together we can fight this whole exam thing and I can help you guys get over the line with the best results possible.

So… I’ve created a special page you can visit just for all of us. You can leave messages, invite your friends to join us, and I’ll be able to let you know reliably when I’ve made more videos for you.

Just make sure you click the BECOME A FAN link in the top left hand corner of the page so I can keep you updated. Click the image below to go to my new Facebook page…

Well I’ve finally found some time to put this next video together for you. It’s all about why you need to have a system of feedback in place when you’re studying for your exams. Every successful sportsperson, musician, company etc. all make use of the principle of feedback and if you want to be successful as well (in exams) then you need to do the same.

Only problem is… most feedback you currently receive is from the end of year exams… when it’s too late!

There’s two main sources of feedback… the first is external mainly from other people eg teachers, tutors, students, friends and examiners. The second is the type of feedback you generate yourself (reflection). This is the type of feedback you have total control over and can get the most benefit from.

Once again… this video explains the strategy behind my study system but not the actual tactics. It explains the ‘why’ but not the ‘how’. Either you figure that out for yourself or you can discover it in HowTo Study Bootcamp

Time Management

Hi guys…

Just dropped in to let you know I’m working on getting the next video out to you real soon. My new Mac computer decided to spit the dummy and I’ve been "computerless" for about a week… it had a dose of "the black screen of death". It’s all better now (cards and chocolates welcome) and I’m trying to get some time in my busy schedule to make another video for you (didn’t know life on a tropical island was meant to be so busy).

The next video will be about the importance of feedback if you want to beat the geeks so hang in there. Should have it done in a few days.


Easy Test Maker

May 14, 2008 – 11:36 pm

Hi guys… Just came across this web site that I thought you might find interesting. Check it out at…

It’s a free online tool that you can use to create your own tests which ties in really well with the video I made for you about the “Question / Answer Reflex”.  I had a bit of a play with it and it looks like it could be useful for training your own Q&A reflexes. It’ll train you in skills that are 100% relevant to those you’ll need for the exams (just like I said in the video about training to be really good in your favorite sport).

Anyway… check it out and if you think it’s a good study tool let me know here on the blog and I’ll make a video about it. This is another technique you can use to stay focused on studying in a way that will directly help you with your study skills. As I’ve been telling you from the start of these videos, most students waste their time studying in a way that has nothing to do with performing well in the exams (those students can go and practice their highlighting skills!).


Making Mistakes

May 11, 2008 – 11:53 pm

Just finished the third video in this series and this one is about the importance of learning from your mistakes when you’re studying.

In addition, it’s a great way to draw attention to those areas of your study material that you need to devote more time to. I was able to use the power of learning from mistakes with devastating consequences in my exam results and if you understand and apply this principle to your study techniques… no reason why it can’t do the same for you.

As always… I look forward to all your comments and questions, and please leave me a digg comment (the little man with the shovel under the video).
