    Medical students who are intellectually gifted and talented often perform individual tasks at a very high level. These students display exceptional memories and learn at a rapid pace. They are knowledgeable about things which their colleagues may not have even heard of yet. But in the USMLE world, a gifted student may also exhibit extreme anxiety more than the average medical student. Here are some truths about giftedness which will further explain why no medical student should deny themselves the opportunity to participate in an adequate USMLE review:

    1. Gifted students are often perfectionists and idealistic. They may equate achievement and grades with self-esteem and self-worth, which sometimes leads to fear of failure and interferes with achievement.

    2. Medical students who are gifted may experience heightened sensitivity to their own expectations and those of others resulting in guilt over achievements or grades perceived to be low.

    3. Most of the gifted students are asynchronous. Their chronological age, social, physical, emotional and intellectual development may be at different levels.

    4. Some gifted students are “mappers” or sequential learners while others are “leapers” or spatial learners. Leapers may not know how they got a right answer. Mappers may get lost in the steps leading to the right answer.

    5. Gifted students may be so far ahead of their colleagues or classmates that they know more than half of the lesson before the school year begins. Their boredom can result in low achievement and grades.

    6. Gifted people are problem solvers. They benefit from working on open-ended, interdisciplinary problems.

    7. Gifted individuals often think abstractly and with such complexity that they may need help with concrete study and test-taking skills. In the USMLE world, they may not be able to select one answer in a multiple choice question because they see how all the answers might be correct.

    8. Gifted individuals who do well in school may define success in getting an “A” and failure as any grade other than “A.” Thus, in their USMLE review sessions or a practice test any result that is not a “perfect” result and does not make them feel they are at the top of their class, may make them feel frustrated.

    Thus medical students who are gifted and talented need opportunities to work hard on challenging learning tasks. Participating with fellow students in a rigorous USMLE review is an opportunity for talented student both to learn and to be understood by their colleagues. In fact the most gifted students may benefit from such reviews as much as, if not more, than the “average” or “below-average” student.

    It is always better to trail a path by holding hand of a person, who knows the path well. Then you are aware of the ups and downs of the path. This holds true for IIT JEE preparation also.

    When a student opts for coaching classes then he knows the complicacies of the exam. He is guided by imminent Professors. They take the path of success and students can also trail the path along with them.

    A good student puts in all the effort but if there is no proper guidance; then he might not succeed in exam. IIT JEE is a well conducted exam and it needs thorough preparations. Any small mistake may lead to a difference in score and hence a difference in achievement.

    The student wants a high score in IIT JEE to get the desired branch and have loads of knowledge in the field of interest. This can only be achieved through high score. The high score is attributed to IIT JEE coaching. A team of highly qualified Professionals are available to coach the students in their field and achieve the target easily.

    Students preparing for IIT JEE need proper coaching regular or online as the choice may be. This will help in getting the right path to tread. It needs lot of determination for proper self-study. Students can study well but cant study so well without proper aid.

    As it is IIT JEE preparation needs strong will-power and determination. And if the student does not get proper back-up, then the stamina is broken leading to inadequate preparation. And none of the students want this kind of attitude towards preparations.

    IIT JEE coaching is a motivational factor to keep the student going. Professors conduct tests on regular basis to assess the students performance and prepare them for future tests. Professors teach the students well and conduct regular tests. These tests allure the students to take up their lessons well and achieve their target with ease.

    Professors also deliver motivational talks for students if they dont perform well. Sometimes, students get distracted by some external factors. Professors also take care to get them back to their ultimate goal IIT JEE. All these reasons make coaching compulsory for IIT entrance test.

    One thing that students detest the most during their school lives is school exams. Under the current Indian education system, school exams are usually considered as the most reliable means of assessing a students progress. Undoubtedly paper & pencil exams are important ways of assessing students understanding of concepts, but relying solely on paper-pencil based assessments as the only way to test how much a child knows may not be right. There are various ways other than school exams that can prove immensely helpful in assessing students progress in schools. Teachers can also assess students through various classroom activities like discussions, debates, practical assignments etc. However, these techniques of assessing could possibly be time consuming and also require the teacher to be very insightful about child psychology. These techniques require teachers to practice strict caution against biases coming into play and demand from the teacher to be a lot more patient, so as to allow students to become comfortable with the set-up.

    Changes introduced by CBSE in its assessment system

    Unlike the other educational boards in India that still continue to rely solely on paper & pencil school exams to evaluate how much the student has understood, CBSE has made an attempt to move away from this system. Under the new scheme (CCE) adopted by CBSE, along with the paper & pencil tests (summative assessments) students are also evaluated through various classroom activities (i.e. formative assessments) like quizzes, presentations, etc. CCE also lays a lot of emphasis on the assessment of students in co-scholastics areas that contributes to the holistic development of student. In light of all the attempts made by the CCE to bring freshness into the education system, care has been taken not to undermine the importance of the traditional testing system (based on paper & pencil tests).

    How to prepare for school exams?

    In order to excel in school exams (formative assessments and paper-pencil tests) it is very important for students to be attentive in the class. Being attentive and focused in the class helps students to effectively understand the concept; as a result it helps them perform well in the classroom discussions. Whereas for the summative assessments it is very important for students to extensively go through the study material and understand all the concepts thoroughly. After understanding the concepts, the next important step is to test your understanding by taking chapter-wise tests. There are a few websites that provide such tests for students studying under CBSE, ICSE, Karnataka, Maharashtra & Tamil Nadu boards. The chapter-wise tests available on such sites are in multiple-choice & question-answer formats that ensure thorough testing. Apart from these chapter-wise tests, students should also try their hand at sample papers/ model tests available at such websites. These mock exams can also help students test their exam taking skills.

    Wishing you all the best for your school exams!

    Happy studying!

    In our school district, the teachers all have a $1500 yearly max benefit. Their out of pocket cost in our office was $400 each. The total we collected on each teacher was $1900.

    If you take $1900 X the 35 teachers that got started with carewe made a cool $66,500 from just two Teacher Appreciation Programsand thats not including what we did from referral marketing and the other forms of marketing we doyes, it was a good summer.

    I share this with you not to make it all about making money, to brag, or to make it sound like Im better than you (because Im not)and in no way shape or form am I even implying that. I share it with you because this is one marketing strategy that you cannot fail at! and I want you to do one of these programs so you can be extremely profitable too!

    However, there is an upside and a downside to a marketing strategy like this.

    The Upside: The great thing about a chiropractic marketing strategy like this is that once you get into a school, you can go back to that school over and over again, all year long if you want to! Some schools have as many as 80-100 teachers (not including the staff) and youll usually only be able to reach a maximum of 25 teachers per Appreciation Programwhich means you can go back 2-3-4 times before you reach “ALL” the teachers. (and the schools will want you to come back because they wont want any of their teachers to miss outas a matter of fact, the teachers will actually beg the school principle to bring you back again) and you can expect to schedule a least 80% of those teachers as patients.

    The Downside: The downside is thismost schools will only allow 1 chiropractic office per district to do these programswhich means if you dont jump on this immediately, some other chiropractor in your area will, and youll be left standing in the cold, wondering “Why didnt I act sooner?”

    This stuff works, it’s highly profitable and its easy to do!

    Is it your dream to attend a prestigious Italian University?

    If it is, you will need to learn Italian or else it will be very hard for you to pursue your field of study. If you want to specialize in Medicine or Architecture, all Italian universities require you to take and pass an entrance exam. This is an exam that you can easily face if you have a knowledge of both the Italian language and the technical terms that apply to your area of study.

    Scuola Leonardo da Vinci has been teaching Italian and preparing foreign students to take their entrance exams for many years. We understand that in the beginning it can be overwhelming to have to take an exam that is not in your first language and that is why we have designed a special course help you prepare for it.

    -The University Preparation Course for Medicine or Architecture- that includes 4 daily lessons of Italian language preparation that can last from 4 to 24 weeks depending on your language knowledge at the moment of enrollment and 140 lessons of preparation to admission test.

    This course carefully focuses on the main subjects that the entrance exam will require you to know. We also pay special attention to grammar and sentence structure, because the exam will evaluate an individual’s correct usage of Italian.

    So your preparatory course will consist of two phases. The first phase is dedicated to linguistic training and the second phase is dedicated to reviewing material that is specific to the student’s particular field of study.

    By the end of the course students will have acquired a good knowledge of Italian language and the necessary linguistic skills to study for the entrance exam, pass the entrance exam with sufficient results, and to face their first year of Italian university with confidence.

    The Preparatory Courses for the Faculty of Architecture will focus on specific architectural language that come from Architectural history, Construction, Science, Mathematics, Physics and other related disciplines.

    For the Preparatory Course for the Faculty of Medicine, we will focus on material somewhat similar, because it will be necessary to have an extensive preparation in the subjects of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, etc.

    If you are thinking about pursuing your university studies in Italy, in Milan or Rome, then these courses would be the right courses for you.

    Next courses will start on March 8th, 2010…for all the information about dates and prices for 2010 please visit our website www.scuolaleonardo.com.

    Feeling stumped on how and where to begin with a school fundraiser? You need to think about the demographics of the target group. It is very important to consider who they are, what they enjoy, and how you can appeal to them to get their attention.
    School fundraisers have started to have a negative connotation in several circles, mostly among parents. The same old discarded magazines, over-priced peanut clusters and undersized-sized candy bars show up each year. With today’s economy, over-burdened parents are trying to maintain a budget and keep their money straight. Also, it’s no longer safe for elementary students to go door-to-door and sell to strangers, so the same relatives often feel obligated to buy fundraising items throughout the year.
    To make your life a little bit easier, here is a simple direction to ensure that your school fundraising events reach their goals and run smoothly. Once you’ve decided which school fundraiser to introduce this year, there area few things to prepare before it’s initiated. Here are a few suggestions on how to organize a fundraiser.
    Set your goals: Decide how much money you need to raise. Take into account all costs that you anticipate to acquire. On the other hand, determining how much you need to raise can be quite a job. It is also essential to have definite goals in mind. Managing a school fundraiser campaign with a vague goal will probably not get a lot of support by parents and students. Have individual group members volunteer to manage a specific task, such as promotion, form collection and product delivery.
    Announce your fundraiser to your group and community: Know how you will promote your school fundraiser. The easiest way to endorse a fundraiser is through ample communication. Be sure to send an informational letter home with your sales brochure to the parents well before the start of the event. Parents can be busy and sometimes things slip their mind. Send home flyers with group members, publish announcements in your school’s newsletter or community newspaper and make announcements in morning homeroom.
    Devise a sales incentive structure for your top-sellers: Decide what prizes you want to give away and begin acquiring them. The incentive used in a school fundraiser, will help more with the success of that fundraiser than any other factor. A school could almost sell five dollar bills for ten dollars and do very well if they motivate the students and parents correctly.
    At any rate, themost significant issuefor your group is to keep your members motivated about your event. Your group’s success depends on your ability to keep your members eager about winning prizes and raising money for the group’s goal. Use these steps to plan your events. If you plan your work and work your plan, everything will fall into place.

    It is very important for engineering students to upgrade their technical skillfulness at regular intervals of time. Most of the times, student’s find it very difficult to upgrade their skills because of their hectic schedule. Training programs are one of the best way for doing so and the best time for going for training programs are summer and winter semester breaks. Moreover, summer training is a compulsory portion of engineering education declared by leading technical university all over the country. Every year huge number of engineering attends summer training programs for their training certification and final year project but somehow the first priority of the students is to get their training certification and final year project rather than on learning and upgrading their technical skills.

    That is why for upgrading and learning latest technologies, students utilize their winter breaks. Third and final year students mostly go for winter training because they need to have upgrade knowledge and skills of technologies in which they wants to build their career. Winter training is beneficial for engineering students because of lesser number of students enrolled for training and complete attention of the trainer because during summer training number of students are very large and it is very difficult for trainers of pay personal attention to every student.

    Moreover, during winter training students can easily start working on their project work before summer training so that they can easily learn more of the advanced technical skills needed for their project work during summer training. Even first and second year students also get advantage of winter training as they can easily clear the basics of the technologies which are going to study in their upcoming years.

    Winter training is not just important for technical skills point of view of the students but also from over all development of the students. Students not only learn learns technology but learns other qualities which are needed in a professional. There are many other aspects of winter training programs which help students like free workshops are conducted during winter training where students get a chance how other trending technologies are being used in the market in the present times. On the other hand, personality development classes are also conducted during winter training.

    The best thing of the winter training is availability of the trainers or experts for clearing the student’s mistrust. Winter training is also the perfect time to think about career and other issues related to a successful career. During winter training, students can concern experts about their do and don’t for successful career.

    After the completion of the winter training students also gets training certificate like summer training and this training certificate works as added advantage for students during their project work and placements.

    Winter training usually starts from November and last till march. Very few training companies offers winter training with all above mentioned feature. Students must research the market before enrolling for the winter training in any of the training company.

    Once the school is over, getting admission into a reputed college is the first aim for any student. They want to excel in life by being a part of the best educational organizations. Even though they have to work hard over there too but the number of opportunities is immense in comparison to the local colleges. Over here, the students can learn about new things with help of the extensively planned education system to provide best education to the children. They are awarded with the global exposure apart from the educational experience hence the student can be a part of something big, once they left the college. With global exposure, they are also exposed to the best professional opportunities with help of the practical knowledge of the industry. In top universities in Australia, colleges tie up with the industry professionals and companies to provide practical exposure to their students. However getting in these top universities is not an easy task:

    Consult educational consultant: before applying for the admission into any of the major universities, it is important to know about the admission procedure so that you do not fumble up. The consultants are fully aware of the admission criteria and the legal obligations for the foreign students. They can guide you in the process by providing you the precise information about the college or the university.

    Score well: most of the colleges and universities for Post Graduation in Australia provide admission on the merit basis. For the foreign students they conduct admission entrance examinations before the admission begins, hence you should be well prepared for that entrance examination. Consult the education consultant about the dates and venues of the exam along with the content of the exam. You should start the preparation right from the school so that excelling in the exam is easy for you.

    Preparation: taking admission in the top universities in Australia also requires proper preparation after giving the examination. It includes the financial help, the valid passport and all the documents from the previous organizations. Once you have given the examination and you know that you will get into the college, start-collecting funds for the admission through educational loans, charity or through the scholarships provided by the literary society. Your passport and the documents required to enter Australia should be in proper order along with the educational certificates.

    Keep an eye on the admission procedure right from your final high school year. some of the colleges announce admission way before anybody else.
