Using Pinterest to Increase Your #CPLP Knowledge Exam Competence & Confidence

Leverage the latest advances in neuroscience ("brain research") to your success on the CPLP Knowledge Exam...

Most CPLP candidates need to improve their thinking to increase the effectiveness of their study prep - and ULTIMATELY! - their CPLP Knowledge Exam performance!

Reading 700+ pages of dense subject matter in a PDF file can be mind numbing - I know! - and used alone is not the most effective way to review or revisit material when preparing for a rigorous exam.

I'm sure you're familiar with one of the common symptoms -- 

Have you found yourself re-reading and re-reading and re-reading the same paragraph over and over again in the ATD Learning System - and it still doesn't "stick"?

Been there, done that. :(

The good news is  - you have options - easy ways to give your brain a break and your exam performance a boost!

According to neuroscientist John Medina, we can improve our thinking (and study practice!) through visuals, memory, repetition, exploration, and sensory integration.

Apply these principles to your CPLP Knowledge Exam success by reviewing ATD Competency Model content and CPLP study prep subject matter in vivid visual living colour on my Pinterest board dedicated solely to CPLP study preparation!

What other advice does neuroscientist John Medina give for high performance thinking - necessary for improving your CPLP Knowledge Exam results?

See the list below. :-)

12 Principles for High Performance Thinking:

  1.     Survival: The human brain evolved too.
  2.     Memory: Repeat to remember.
  3.     Exercise: Exercise to boost brain power.
  4.     Sensory Integration: Stimulate more of the senses.
  5.     Sleep: Sleep well, think well.
  6.     Vision: Vision trumps all other senses.
  7.     Stress: Stressed brains don't learn the same way.
  8.     Music: Study or listen to boost cognition.
  9.     Wiring: Every brain is wired differently.
  10.     Gender: Male and female brains are different.
  11.     Attention: We don't pay attention to boring things.
  12.     Exploration: We are powerful and natural explorers.
