You need to visualize what you want to happen and not what you fear to happen …
after seeing the film "the secret" my theory was intensified

Some pointers given by Metaphysist : Dr. Joe Vitale & Philosopher John Assaraf "from
the law of attraction"

1. Here , the images you hold in your mind must be absolutely clear of what you
wanted to be.
2. You should think of yourself as a magnet , you attract what you think the most
3. Thoughts are sending out that magnetic signal and that signal is drawing back
to you …
4. Thought has a frequency , it can be measured , if you want to be an archt. then
think of it over and over again and mind u , you’re emitting that frequency on a
consistent basis..
5. The law of attraction is very obedient ….
from the words of God " what ever you ask in my name it shall be given unto u
nothing is impossible with God"
6. When u think of something that u want , focus on it with all intentions and a lot
of passion ….and you’ll see it happens even faster!!

Another theory by Rev. Dr. Michael Backwith ……

" an affirmative thought is hundreds of times more powerful than a negative thought ."
we must be positive in our outlook and manifestations so that we can also attract positive
people , events and circumstances .

What to expect and how to prepare for the board exams ?

1. Memorization is necessary – you must remember many facts

In memorization graphical resolution has a greater part w/ the use of our optical
resolution it can retain almost 90% ,& this 90% perceived by the eyes can be
easily absorbed especially in History , most structures can be memorized
easily by viewing constantly .

2. Wide in Scope – from pre-historic to modern styles. History in Architecture has

a beginning but doesn’t have an end , tallest buildings today won’t be permanent .
Taipei 101 will not be the tallest building next year . It’s a continuous study .

3. Repetitive – questions from previous exams are re-used. It could help if you have
past board exam questionaires to review .
4. History amounts to only around 10% of your total score. And yet when you failed
that 10% you’ll have to retake the board exam . So still we have to make an effort
in order to cover everything and not be sorry .


Try not to memorize… but to understand

Try to associate pictures photographic memory to your review.

History is not a list of facts… it is a story that can be retold over and over.
