A few weeks back, based on my experience, I wrote an article on ‘7 tips to pass an exam’ (you may visit:http://wisdomfrombooks.com/how-to-pass-exams-7-useful-tips/) which was greatly appreciated by the readers.

I was thinking to write something on techniques for better and effective learning and this post comprise of some ideas towards better learning. A few days back, I was watching Paul Mckenna’s lecture on accelerated learning.

However, before you read the 8 ideas presented in this international best seller, an interesting thing must be noted.
