The Silver String Technique

The Silver String Technique: Revise Smart, Achieve More. A Game Changing Revision And Exam Technique For Essay Based Exams


This fully illustrated quick-read guide book will teach you a revision and exam technique for essay-based exams that's so staggeringly useful it's worth writing a book about. The Silver String Technique combines 3 well established mnemonics (memory strategies) into a cohesive blend that is perfectly suited to the exam environment. It can be used by school students, university students, and adults with a variety of learning styles. This book will teach you how to:Write effective revision notes with the help of printable worksheets that can be downloaded online.Condense your notes to memory-jogging "mind keys" that can be scribbled down at the start of an exam. This cuts exam pressure in half.Quickly commit your revision notes to memory through rote learning and visualisation.Reliably access memorised material by deliberately 'looking up' information in your head.Structure well formulated essay answers by using factually rich "mind keys" that double-up as essay plans.A concrete example of using The Silver String Technique in preparation for a hypothetical exam is provided throughout this book to ensure that you can fully understand how to apply the technique to your own revision.This book can be read cover to cover in a matter of hours, less if you skim read. But the reward is significant: significantly less frustration at the memorisation stage, significantly less time spent relearning facts that refuse to stick, and significantly less worry over memory failure. Exams are only difficult when you lack the appropriate tools. Here you will find the missing tool set.Procrastination during the revision period is often the result of uncertainty on how best to proceed rather than simply lack of motivation or laziness. By providing step by step instructions on each stage of the process, this book removes the uncertainty from revision and replaces it with an empowering technique that will increase confidence and reduce exam stress.If you or your child are studying essay-based subjects like Law, History, English, Religious Studies, Languages, Geography, Sociology, Psychology, Business Studies, or Economics, this book may prove to be the most sensible investment of money and time you ever make.Learn the technique. Use it. And then share the knowledge with others.
