"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

If you have a third day available, you could take all eight Master Mind Maps, and interlink them into one Grand Master Mind Map!

Yes, everything does connect to everything else, no matter how different it all might seem. When you can do this trick, the world will see in you a magician of the mind!

Imagine, one Mind Map of eight books! You can do it!

A Note for School Students:

If you do this exercise with your school subjects, each group will be able to finish one year’s syllabus per subject in one week!

This is what I call A Learning Miracle!

How? Well, imagine that one of your subjects, say Geography, has 20 chapters in the text book.

Each person in a group of four can easily finish one chapter a day (I have seen kids do two chapters a day). This means four chapters per day between the four members of the group. Five days for 20 chapters!

Another two days to polish up and review. You will at worst have 20 sheets of paper each, that is, one Mind Map per chapter.

Of course, because you are smart, you will be able to consolidate the 20 sheets onto one LARGE sheet and voilahhhh! you’ve done it. This is rapid learning.

For lazy learning, all you need is to take two weeks instead of one; still top class! Go for it and claim your genius!

Note: It is a good idea to consult teachers and parents who can serve as ‘learning guides’.

Say Keng's personal comments:

Although the proven power studying methodology as outlined by Dilip Mukerjea is apparently targetted at secondary school or junior college students, the entire systematic process is fully applicable to students in tertiary institutions as well as to entrepreneurs, managers & professionals, who are pursuing their MBAs, evening or otherwise.

In a nut shell, it's actually doing more with less. It's also leveraging on the synergistic brainpower of a group pursuing a common academic objective.

Just imagine: If a human brain contains the potential of a bazillion permutations of connections between synapses, two human brains, fully connected with a common objective, have a bazillion squared permutations. That's a lot more than double the brainpower!

In tactical terms, it is akin to the phenomenon of 'Knowledge Shared is Power Squared'. Please read my earlier post on this topic.
