"... a great advantage for studying for my Leaving Cert - it reduces your study time, stimultes your imagination and helps you learn faster. I found the Symbol Wheels very beneficial and I will use them in the future. I feel that my memory will be much better now and I will learn things easier. I found it very helpful and beneficial to me."

“This course was excellent and definitely worthwhile and I would advise all students to attend because it helps so much and gives you a study plan that will work well for the Leaving Cert. ….It helped me a lot because it helps you to understand what you are studying by visualising. I feel more coherent now to go and do studying than before. It shows a more effective way to study in a less stressful short amount of time.”

"...This is not just only for studying and its nothing like the "study skills classes" your school gives. This programme teaches you how to learn as opposed to just telling you what to learn. ..Self-motivation has been triggered for me. It is very interesting and I would advise anyone to do it. BRILLIANT. THANK YOU!
