A CD ROM By Neil Taylor
This CD ROM, designed to help any person studying for and taking any exam, is produced to inspire them to maximise their potential. If you have a PC you can load it, but you will need your imagination, open-mindedness and a sense of fun to make it work.
Originally conceived for professionals it has sold more than 3900 copies at the time of writing (February 2008) and has proved an invaluable resource for schools, more mature study victims and those exploring the newly discovered limitlessness of memory and imagination.
Although learning and the attaining of qualifications is a serious matter Neil Taylor strongly believes that it should be approached in an energetic, stimulating and fun way. Winning The Brain Game is for any exam student who wants study to be effective, creative, memorable and even inspirational, and who also wants to do justice to the long hours of study where it most counts - in the exam room.
In its review of the CD ROM The Daily Telegraph said, ‘It’s also immensely entertaining - comedian Hugh Dennis provides the voice-over - and leaves you wondering why nobody has developed such a CD ROM before. Make it your first step towards conquering that irrational fear of exams.’ That paper went on to award the product five stars (out of five) for originality and four for enjoyment.
Arnold Evans in The Times said that ‘every school should have a copy readily available and encourage students to seek inspiration from it.’ He went on to say, ‘it makes relentless use of silly cartoons, marvellously inane games and music to hammer home its messages.’ Richard Grant of The Mail On Sunday agreed; ‘schemes for harnessing the right side of the brain have been around for years, usually in improve-yourself literature. Winning The Brain Game cleverly repackages the notion without making it seem heavy-handed advice.’
Its four sections entitled ‘Get Organised’, ‘Right Brain’, ‘Revisit and Review’ and ‘In The Exam Room’ tell you all you need to know, but you will need £35 plus £1.50 p+p to get hold of a copy at the contact address on this site.
