Lobdell taught Psychology at Pierce College in Washington State for 40 years. During Lobdell's career, he has taught tens of thousands of students and he wants students to succeed. After watching students cram for eight hours or more for a test without any improvement, Lobdell has developed a studying technique that helps the brain retain the information that you are studying in this video "Study Less, Study Smart"

    I had so many requests for my presentation "Study Less, Study Smart" that I wrote a book that covers all of the strategies on the video in greater depth and adds many more tips. Go to Amazon Books and search for Marty Lobdell, Study Less, Study Smart. Also available in Kindel format. Thanks, Marty Lobdell

      if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    I find that I can study for 45 minutes to an hour and then get up, grab a snack or drink to recharge, then return to my studies. I found that I could do homework/study for 3 or 4 hours as long as I took breaks. I found that my blood sugar would crash and snack breaks helped alot.

    Not sure how you made a one hour lecture interesting. Thank you for presenting this in such a helpful way, I have watched many videos like this - however your experience and wisdom had my full attention. I only wish more teachers had love and passion for their role like you do. Hoping you are happy and well. :)

    I used a similar method. Study 30 minutes -> Sleep 45 minutes (1 REM cycle) -> 10 minutes recall (revise past 30 minutes) -> 10 minute break (food, toilet, ...) -> repeat. This resulted in near perfect retention of complex matter. Skip one cycle of sleep and you're braindead for a week though. :-D
