Full Disclosure: I received a copy of a Crushendo outline at no cost to do this review. I’m not usually into that but the ad was fun so I went with it. They also agreed to give Smart Student Secrets readers a discount. The agreement with Crushendo goes no farther than that. Now I’m free to write absolutely anything about them!!! MAWHAHAHA…

Anyway…

The video is fun, right? If you didn’t take the two minutes to watch the end then do it right now. Don’t worry… it’s more fun than salesy. That’s what caught my interest.

For this review, I got to dig into the Constitutional Law Outlines program that include the exciting world of Crawdads and KKK members climbing out third story windows. Have no idea what that means? Well… you would if you completed the outline.

I’m trying to make a point with this, I swear.

The Good

The outlines were straight to the point. There were no boring lectures. It was just important point after important point. And it made those points interesting with it’s memory hooks.

Going through the outline I kept catching obscure memory strategies that might not be immediately obvious to the listener. I’m very experienced with memory tricks and it amazed me how effectively these topics were packed into the outline.

Crushendo was pleasant listening. The audio quality was good. The clips were straight to the point. And it was never too long to stay focused through.

The Bad

Crushendo is an amazing supplement to your courses. That’s how you should be treating it.

It’s not a skip class and learn it here type program. It’s a show up to class and be ten times as prepared because you listened to this type program. (If that somehow makes a lick of sense.)

It’s so well focused on the most important points that you’re going to need to be focused to get anything through the audio clips. If you lose focus for thirty seconds then you’ve missed the point. (They recommend you listen to each clip multiple times. I agree with that recommendation.)

What It’s Like

It’s kind of like you’re listening to a textbook of amusing memory tricks.

It definitely has the facts.

It’s kind of fun but still is obviously teaching you something.

The stuff it tells you sticks because it’s showering you in every memory trick (mnemonics, loci, funny) ever discovered in the last two thousand years.

If you’re a law student, you should already know this:

You’re going to have to work hard to kick butt.

Crushendo can make you have to work less hard. It takes the most challenging parts of memory and makes them automatic. (It also lets you get away from reading textbooks which is huge.)

I really enjoyed working with Crushendo and I think you will too.

Use the coupon code Smart15 and Crushendo will hook you up with a big discount because you came from Smart Student Secrets.

A Quick Introduction To Crushendo – Law Students Take Note

You Will Score Near The Top Of Your Class

I can’t promise you that you’ll be the top scoring student in your class…

Look… some folks are willing and able to study 12 hours a day. They don’t have a life outside of school. And they’re willing to throw every second into their scores because… they’re nuts…

but I can tell you this…

You will score near the top of your class…

And it will be much easier than you think.

I know… that’s hard to believe… I get it…

The thing is: most of us were taught the COMPLETE WRONG WAY to become successful in school. It’s like you’ve been running carrying a 50 pound weight for years because these they taught you are so opposite of effective. The fact that you’re doing as well as you are using these strategies is a proof of your intelligence.

Once you drop that weight – and you start studying the way experts through all of history studied – and the same strategies scientists are verifying repeatedly to this day…

Your grades are going to skyrocket.

And… once you get the hang of it… it’s going to feel like…

Well… like you know learning should feel –

Natural.
