Then branching out you have PREPARE, PREVIEW, PHOTO READ, ACTIVATE, and RAPIDREA
Branching out from that you have PREPARE - (state of mind and purpose), PREVIEW
- (survey, triger words and review), PHOTO READ (enter accelerated learning stat
e, affirm, photo focus, matain steady state and the closing), ACTIVATE - (mind m
ap, dip, super read, mind probing), and RAPIDREAD


1. PREPARE - get ready know what you what to accomplish.
2. Enter ACCELERATED LEARNING STATE - be relaxed physically and mentally.

tion of words, and of the word you are remembering; at first to check yourself,
as a gauge or to (know) look up your word's location, on the page that you remem
bered in the book that you read.

n multiple sections at a time, or read as in whole pages at a time instantly)
remember: creative remembering of objects in mind.

5. Learning Process
In your learing process you have four levels that you go through.
1. UNCONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE - you start out with fear, relize there is a problem
but dont know where to start to handle it.
2. CONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE - the knowing there is a problem and attempting to do
something about it but not succeded yet.

oto reading state)

is it a summary/specific material.
How much time am im willing to commit to get the info right now?

Super reading - entails quickly moving through large amounts of text, giving yo
ur mind the chance to sort out and fixate on words that carry meaning.

tracted to key words, phrases, selections, and ideas. You bypass whatever is uni

your questions. It is your chance to pause and savor the important facts and ide

of the whole book.
notes: activation techniques
including various mind probing exercises, super reading, dipping, and mind mappi
You may need multiple steps of activation and super reading to all of the inform
ation you are looking for.
Mind Probe
Play with the physical book, letting yourself wander through the pages. Formulat
e questions that you are curious about and want to answer.
Super Read
Super read sections that attract you.
Dip into and read select passages as you are moved to do so, but never more than
a page or two at a time. Search for the specific answers you desire.
Mind Map
Activate the material through mind mapping, dreaming, acting,
drawing, discussing, recognition games, or in any other comfortable way.

You must learn when and how to modify questions you are asking depending upon th
e information you have and the information you want.
Mind probing by forming questions will activate your mind effectively and bring
more information into conscious awareness.
Super Read and Dip Along the Train of Thought
In one type of scheme an author first describes a problem, then later in the tex
t explains how to solve the problem. If you want the author's steps for solving
the problem, you can bypass what you do not need and move quickly to the place f
or dipping and achieving your goal.
author's train of thought - The problem,The main argument about where the proble
m comes from, a solution emerges to suggest a remedy for the problem
The theory of multiple intelligences developed by Howard Gardner from Harvard Un
iversity identifies seven intelligences that deserve recognition in all learning
1) Linguistic Intelligence
Sensitivity to the meaning and order of words. Language experts, writers, and pu
blic speakers use this intelligence.
2) Logical-Mathematical Intelligence
Ability in mathematics and other complex logical systems. Computer
technologists, engineers, and scientists are drawn from this group.
3) Musical Intelligence
Ability to understand and create music. Musicians, composers, and dancers show a
heightened musical intelligence.
4) Spatial Intelligence
Ability to perceive the visual world accurately and recreate (or alter) it in th
e mind or on paper. Designers, architects, and air traffic controllers specializ
e in this intelligence.
5) Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence
Ability to use the body in a skilled way for self-expression, goal attainment, o
r entertainment. Athletes, dancers, and actors excel in this intelligence.
6) Interpersonal Intelligence
Ability to perceive and understand other individuals their moods, desires, and mot
ivations. Business leaders, politicians, teachers, and therapists use this intel
7) Intrapersonal Intelligence
Understanding personal emotions, values, and philosophy. People who write intros
pectively, counsellors, inventors, and religious leaders are skilled in this int
