The common academic problems include a lack of motivation, inefficiency, poor scheduling of time, procrastination, and exam stress. All of these are interrelated, so if a student can improve in one area, they will naturally experience improvement in the other areas as well. Many students suffer from these difficulties at some point during their academic careers, often due to outside forces such as social distractions, part-time jobs, or extra-curricular activities. However, working through these issues is often more difficult for students with disabilities, since it is often harder for them to identify and activate the coping strategies needed to reduce the impact of the problems. "Max Grades Min Effort" offers students a detailed, practical guide as to how to start moving in the right direction, so there will be no need for any student to feel lost.
Although Truong himself was never diagnosed with a learning disability, he knows what it's like to struggle in school. At the beginning of his degree program, he kept working harder and harder, only to get the same mediocre results over and over again. He became anxious and frustrated, and was once in such a poor state of mind, he fainted during one of his examinations. To solve his problems, Truong eventually decided to give up the conventional idea that more studying is always better. He began to experiment with different studying techniques without focusing on the amount of hours he put in. After he found the techniques that worked for him, he was actually able to achieve better grades while studying for less time. He graduated within the top 5 per cent of his class at Australia's Griffith University, and decided to create "Max Grades Min Effort" to in order to share his secrets with others.
The main part of the study system consists of five e-book modules, each designed to assist students with the common academic problems previously mentioned. Students with learning disabilities will find the second module, "Secrets of Speed Studying," highly beneficial; within it, Truong offers specific ways students can take notes from textbooks or lectures and review them quickly, while still retaining all the information. Students struggling especially with the testing process must consult "How to Simply Dominate Any Exam," a module within which Truong informs students as to what they must do before, during, and after an exam in order to have the best experience possible. The set of modules also contains useful charts which will assist students with scheduling each of their homework sessions and other commitments so they don't miss deadlines, and with setting specific, measurable goals. The program's two bonus features, the 14-day Action Plan (which will guide students through the first two weeks of their new academic outlooks), and Truong's Gantt Chart time management software will also serve as useful tools. The Gantt Charts are easy to read, since they allow students to colour-code the time allotted to various activities against a black background.
By using "Max Grades Min Effort," students with learning disabilities will learn how to speed up their studying processes and reduce frustration, which will lead them closer to academic excellence. Many struggle with feelings of inadequacy, but by using the program they'll realize that, when equipped with the right tools and strategies, they're just as intelligent and skilled as anyone else. This realization will give them the confidence they need to complete their degrees and move forward into their careers with enthusiasm. With the next semester just around the corner, students with learning disabilities and their parents should consider checking out this digital road map to academic and career success. Other students who struggle with studying for any reason will also be able to reap the program's benefits. "Max Grades Min Effort" is still being sold at the low introductory price of $37, and is available at http://www.maxgradesmineffort.com. All customers are able to download the program immediately after purchasing their copies, and will be able to download any future upgrades at no cost.
