As I’ve written in post after post in the main section of this blog, there is a huge difference between memorizing something and understanding something. Memorizing is being able to recite the words. Virtually everyone can make sense of that part of this equation. It’s a basic concept that’s taught from the earliest years of your schooling. Understanding is a much more interesting and powerful process. Once you make sense of it, it can change the way you think about… well… thinking.

Understanding’s dictionary definition is too broad to use in most practical contexts. Understanding is often described by professionals in complex terms and checklists. Instead professionals in education have created long and complex methodologies to describe it, and in my humble opinion, make themselves look good. I’ve always found a simple explanation of understanding to be the most powerful.

Using a simple strategy like this one you can maximize the efficiency of the time you spend studying. It can help turn your 15MSS (15 Minute Study Strategy) into a top of the class style strategy with 5% of the actual work.

Thanks so much for being a subscriber to the blog! I really hope this can help you improve your grades. If you enjoy this site then please share this blog with other students you think it might help.
