    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

Funny thing is I go in the class feeling so hyped, 2 minutes later I'm yarning, I'm slowly deeming my eyes, a minute after I'm dreaming about the Last football game we had, a minute after I hear my name bieng called in a deep voice, so boring bieng in classes or lectures with Teachers that don't put enough Affective work in.
