Study Tricks - 1

Reading, writing, arithmetic. They're the core of the grade-school curriculum - but often the bane of a child with attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD). Your child's teacher may not have the patience or expertise to offer your child tips to master these subjects in ways that work best for her.
That's where you come in. Help your child use these creative learning tricks, and watch the three R's soar.


  • Follow with a finger. Encourage your child to read with a guide finger. This can help with losing his place, skipping lines, and omitting or repeating words.
  • Stick 'em up. Have your child mark important passages with sticky notes, so she can find them later. Use a symbol for each topic, for example, a smiley face for information about a character, a house for setting, a star for important ideas.
  • Pace read-alouds. Suggest that your child take a short breath at each comma and a regular breath at the end of each sentence. This will improve his reading pace - and comprehension.
  • Find the five W's. Focus on who, what, when, where, why, and how when reading. Help your child track them with a chart.
  • See it. Help your child to visualize a story by seeing it as a movie in her mind. As she reads, the movie should change. This will help her remember characters, facts, and concepts.


  • Chart it. Have your child verbalize what he will write, then make a flow chart or mind map. Have him write the main topic in a circle in the center of a piece of paper, then write subtopics in other circles and connect them to the main circle with spokes. This will enable him to articulate ideas and link them appropriately, regardless of the order in which they were generated.
  • Use a story organizer. This works for both reading and writing. Your child should make a list that includes characters, setting (time and place), the problem, the goal, the action, and the solution. Fill in the details under each heading.
  • Draw it. Use diagrams or drawings to plot and tell a story.


  • Use games. Here's an example, for multiplying 9s: Lay your hands flat on the table, palms down, and label each finger 1 to 10, from left to right. For 5 x 9, curl your number 5 finger down. The numbers before this break will be tens, those after will be the ones. With four fingers on the left side of the break and five on the right, you have 45. 5 x 9 = 45.
  • Be manipulative. Use blocks, tiles, even playing cards, to work out computations physically.
  • Draw a picture. For example, if the problem is to divide 48 cookies among 12 students, draw a plate for each student, then divide the cookies among the plates. Seeing the problem helps kids who struggle to learn math in traditional ways.
  • See the sign. Have your child highlight the operational sign (+, -, x, ÷) for each problem before working the calculations. This reinforces the type of computation asked for.

How to cheat in Exam Method - 5

Try cramming information last minute. By spending the few minutes before an exam skimming over your notes or studying, you have a shot at being able to do well without cheating.

  1. For essays, try to remember key words. Usually professors or teachers have "key words" that they are looking for in an essay. This means that the actual "fluff" of the essay is less important. If you know the topic or possible topics of an essay question, cram four to five terms you know your professor will be looking for. Instead of having to study everything, you can succeed with less effort.
  2. For math exams, try to memorize formulas. Knowing a formula can be more powerful that spending hours doing practice problems. If you can write down a formula enough to memorize it, then you can spend the test trying to apply those to the problems.
  3. For multiple choice exams, try "chunking" information you know will be on the test. Instead of memorizing a list of words, try breaking it into easier to remember smaller lists. For example, if I am studying for a history test, instead of remembering "Jefferson, Hamilton, Franklin, Washington, Grant, Lincoln, and Lee" break it up into the "4 of the founding fathers: Franklin, Washington, Jefferson and Hamilton" and the "3 civil war leaders: Lee, Lincoln, Grant." By memorizing the number of men to a specific topic, it'll be easier to narrow down who you are missing.

How to cheat in Exam Method - 4

Try getting the "Instructor's Edition" version of your Textbook. For professors who use pre-made quizzes from their "instructor's edition" textbooks, purchase a copy. Find the correct edition of the book online and buy it. Before a quiz memorize the answers to the questions. This method is good for entry level science, foreign language and/or history classes that pull their quizzes straight from the book.

Try getting an "Advanced/Old Copy" of the test. This can be done by talking to an old student or by talking to other students who might have connections in the class. Study straight from the exam, or if you suspect that the exam will be the same, study the answers straight.

Try the "Comeback Later" method. If you know a professor or teacher will let you come back to finish a test, purposefully don't finish the exam and ask to comeback on a later date. Make sure to memorize the topics or questions so that you can look up the answers before finishing the test later.
Claim to be sick, go to the bathroom towards the end of the exam until its over, or pace yourself slowly. Be sure that your professor will let you come back before using this method as you could actually do worse if he/she doesn't let you finish.

Try the "Bring Your Pencil" method. As you turn in your exam, if your professor isn't at her/his desk, use a pencil you brought up with you to change or write in answers from the test at the top of the pile. (This is a high risk!)

How to cheat in Exam Method - 3

Try the "Peeking-Partner" method. Seat yourself behind someone who will do well on the test (either bragged about studying or is a master in the subject). Adjust yourself so that you are on the furthest left or right on your seat facing diagonally towards his or her desk, this should allow you to look over their shoulder without having to move your head too much. Never choose a student in the center of the classroom or in the front as this makes it more likely that your teacher will notice you looking over their shoulder.

  1. Try the "Signing-Partner" method. Create a system of signing with a fellow student in the class. This is going to double your knowledge of the subject because you can work together to sign answers to each other. On multiple choice exams:
  2. Establish hand or foot tapping signals for A, B, C, D, E and "wrong answer." By creating a signal for "wrong answer" you are going to improve the likelihood of you both doing well on the test by helping each other eliminate wrong answers. Also create a vocal noise for getting their attention that isn't suspicious (like a cough, or foot tap).
  3. Start by coughing to get their attention.
  4. Use your fingers to give the number of the question (flash 3 than a 2 to with your hand signal question "32").
  5. Wait for them to signal their answer (pulling their ear for "B").
  6. If you need help deciding between 2 answers: cough, give the question number, and signal for the answer you suspect it might be.
  7. He or she can nod his or her head if its correct, if it's the wrong answer he or she can send the "wrong answer" signal (put up your hair in a ponytail).

How to cheat in Exam Method - 2

Start by gathering the information you will need. This includes formulas, key words, vocabulary, dates, definitions, names, conjugations, etc.

Write or print the information correctly. The font should always be clear to read, and in the Goldie Locks size (not too big, not too small). While you would want to include as much as possible on the small sheet of paper, remember if the font is too small you will overly focus on your cheat-sheet thereby increasing your chances of getting caught. Also if it is possible to print-out your cheat sheet, do that. It will reduce the chances of your teacher or professor being able to trace it back to you.

Copy it down. This is most common for spelling tests. Copy down the spellings in your spelling book to a piece of paper, then put it on your lap or up your sleeve. This is a high risk method, so be careful.

Hide the sheet.
  1. Try the "Body Part Cheat-Sheet" method. Instead of printing out the cheat sheet, try writing it on a part of your body. Good places include your forearm if you are a man or your upper thigh if you are a woman. These are both great because you can wear a dress or long sleeve shirt to cover up your cheat sheet when you aren't using it. It's important to not make it obvious that there is writing on your body. Put the words in a place that faces you only.
  2. Try the "Water Bottle Cheat-Sheet" method. Print out the cheat sheet on a colored piece of paper that matches that label of your water bottle. Paste it on the label and turn it so that it only faces you. Ideally, you want to mimic the writing on the label to avoid suspicion.
  3. Try the "Binder Cheat-Sheet" method. If you have a binder that has a clear slot in the front, slide your cheat sheet into there. Move your binder from under your desk to the slide of your desk to peek at your cheat sheet. Try to minimize the amount of slide, especially if you don't have carpet in your classroom.
  4. Try the "Calculator Cheat-Sheet" method. This is common for people who are taking math tests, because that's the only reasonable time to have a calculator without being suspicious. Slide formulas or information terms between the back of the calculator and the calculator's cover.
  5. Another Calculator Method to try: If you have a graphing calculator, save the math formulas into your calculator. Then, put the information into archive, so you will still be able to get to it if your teacher makes you clear the RAM. Unarchive the information during the test. Clear the memory after the test. This also works if it's the school's calculator, because no teacher or student is going to look in the archive. If you don't know how to archive things on a calculator, look it up.
  6. Try the "Stashed Cheat-Sheet" method. Hide a cheat-sheet in a separate place all together to avoid it getting connected back to you. This includes on a bulletin board in the classroom, in a bathroom stall or on someone's chair.

How to cheat in Exam Method - 1

1. Decide which type of cheating is going to be most beneficial for you — theCheat-Sheet, the Partner-Cheating, or the Hard-to-Prove. (Refer to the sections below for more information on such methods.)

2. Don't get caught. Cheating only helps if you can get away with it. Here are some simple tips to avoid getting caught:
  • Don't look suspicious. It's important to strike a balance between effectively getting your answers and not making it obvious. To do this, don't overly fidget. If you must look around, never hold your gaze in one place for longer than five to ten seconds. Switch it up by randomly staring in other directions — this way, your test supervisors won't get too suspicious and find out where your accomplice (or cheat sheet) is.
  • Don't aim too high. It's not impossible to cheat your way into a perfect score if you really put in the effort, but if everyone else is getting an unremarkable grade on the exam, you will draw attention to yourself. This is fine if you normally get decent marks, but if you're known among teachers as one of the slower students, then there's a chance that they'll find out. Deliberately miss a few questions, though, and you'll be good to go. A tip is to get a B on a test and continually raise your average score until it's an A. Remember to do this slowly.
  • Dispose of the evidence. As soon as the test is over ask to go to the bathroom (if you haven't already gone) to wash off or throw away any evidence of cheating. The longer you hold on to something, then the better your chance of getting caught because one person or another will notice.

5 cool Windows-7 Keyboard Tips and Tricks

Anyone working professionally with a computer has their hands on the keyboard most of the time. Reaching for the mouse can be an annoying disturbance and personally I often turn over my mouse in such situations. An easy solution is to simply keep the hands on the keyboard and complete as many tasks as possible with keyboard shortcuts only.

Apart from making you work more efficiently and faster, you can also impress your friends or colleagues by being able to work without a mouse. This article describes some cool Windows 7 keyboard tricks to get you started. In the end you might never want to take your hands off the keyboard again.

For your convenience, more keyboard shortcut resources are attached at the bottom.
Note that some of these shortcuts will only work if Windows Aero is enabled.

VLC Tips and Tricks

VLC 0.9 has released to widespread acclaim. The media player of choice for many, has packed in a horde of new features and marked changes in the design and interface. There are only two issues we have with the new design, which we will put out of the way first. The playback bar has jazzed up buttons, which won’t appeal to those who went for the minimalist charm of VLC. They have also inverted the direction in which the scroll works with the media, you scroll down to go backward, and scroll up to go forward which is counterintuitive to everyone and irritating to the long term users. Now for the good stuff.

1. Adjust The Colour Of The Video
In the playback bar, click on the icon that looks like the equaliser for lesser media players. This is right next to the playback button. Then select the ‘video effects’ tab. The ‘basic’ tab will be selected by default. Check the ‘image adjust’ checkbox. From here, you can adjust the hue, saturation, contrast, brightness and gamma of the image. There is also a ‘brightness threshold’ slider. The changed take place in real time, an this can be used to enhance dark videos.

2. Take Snapshots Of The Video
a. Play Video then Click on Video>Snapshot 
b. Go to Tools > Preferences > Video. Under video snapshots, enter the directory, a prefix, check ‘sequential numbering’ and choose a format. The default is .png. To take the snapshot while the video is playing, go to Video > Snapshot. Alternatively, you can take a snapshot using the keyboard with the hotkey [Shift] + [S]. To use a button to take a snapshot, go to Tools > Advanced Controls. The snapshot button appears on the playback bar.

3. Stream Video Across A Network
This can be used to broadcast a video over the Net, or to stream videos to everyone’s PC in the office at once, or to everyone’s laptops in a conference room. Click on advanced open file, select ‘show more options’. On the bottom right corner, next to the play and cancel buttons will be a small additional options button. Click on this, and select stream. A stream output dialogue will pop up.

You can select the encapsulation, the video and audio codecs and the bitrate. Remember that not all formats can be converted to all other formats, this is a limitation of the format and not of the player. Under outputs, select a protocol. Selecting multiple protocols will stream the video output in all the protocols. To open a stream, go to ‘Advanced open file’, select the ‘Network’ tab and select the relevant protocol and address.

4. Add A Ticker To The Video
Go to Tools > Preferences, select ‘All’ under ‘Show Settings’
Go to Video > Subtitles/OSD > Marquee. Enter the text in the marquee, and the text will scroll across the screen while the video is playing. You can also tweak the settings to get an RSS feed to scroll across the video. Copy the feed url, then go to Tools > Preferences, select ‘all’ under ‘show settings; Go to Video > Subtitles/OSD tick on “RSS and Atom feed display’ and enter the URL in the bar.

There is an option to display or not display images in the feeds.

5. Add Effects To The Video
We are not sure why this feature is provided, but it is fun and users may discover innovative uses for them.
Click on the effects button. Go to Video Effects > Image Modification.
The gradient effect gives a cartoonish feel to the video. The motion blur has a factor slider. These are the two main effects. The other effects include waves, motion detect, noise, water and psychedelic. You can apply a selection of these effects at once to the video. The changes take place in real time.

6. To Resume Playback From A Specific Time
If you were interrupted while watching a video or a movie, and want to resume from the exact moment you left off, there are two ways to do it. 
While playing the movie, go to Playback > Go to specific time, and enter the time in dialogue that pops up.
The other way to do this is to go to Media > Advanced open file, check ‘Show more options’ and enter the Start Time.

7.Use VLC As A Transcoder
Open a file, then go to Media > Convert/Save. In the file tab, click on the Convert/Save button.
Select the ‘File’ checkbox under ‘Outputs’. Enter a file name. Make sure that draw raw input is unchecked.
Then select an encapsulation, that is basically the format under ‘profile’.
Select a video codec and audio codec under the ‘Video codec’ and ‘Audio codec’ tabs.
You can save files in a format to be played on a portable media device.
Click on Save.

8.Change The Jump Settings
There are hotkeys to jump backwards and forwards through the file (refer to the list of hotkeys). The default values for the ‘Very short’, ‘Short’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Long’ jumps can be changed as per individual preferences.
Go to Tools > Preferences under ‘Show settings’ select ‘All’. Go to Interface > Hotkey Settings and under ‘Jump sizes’ edit the values as per your preferences. You can also use this window to change the default hotkeys, and add hotkeys to functions that have no default hotkeys.

9.Using The Loop Function
VLC can loop a part of a song or a video over and over again. To use this feature, go to Tools > Advanced controls. The loop button should appear on the playback bar. Open the file you want to play, click the button when you come to the part on the media you want to start the loop at. Click on the button again at the part of the file you want the loop to end. VLC will now start playing that portion of a file in an endless loop till you click on the loop button again to stop the loop.

10.Play Image Files In VLC
VLC has the capability to play image files without having to mount the image files on a virtual drive first. Although many formats are supported, many are not. Open an image file directly for the video to start playing.

11. Listen to podcasts.
Go to Playlist > Additional Sources > Configure Podcasts. Add the podcast url, or add multiple urls.
Go to Playlist > Additional sources > Podcasts.
Go to Playlist > Show playlist. The list of podcasts you added should appear in the playlist window now. Double-click on one to start playing.

12. Listen To Online Radio
To listen to online radio, go to Playlist > Shoutcast Radio Listings.
Then go to Playlist > Show Playlist. The Shoutcast radio option should have appeared below the ‘Playlist’ and ‘Media Library’ options. A long list of genres and radio stations will appear. Select one that you want to listen to you. Some of the stations listed don’t work, and some might make the player crash. Some stations are listed under multiple genres.

13. Prevent Screensaver Interruption
This is a highly useful feature that prevents a screensaver from interrupting the movie you are watching.
Go to Tools > Preferences. In the dialogue that pop ups, look at the bottom left corner, and select the ‘All’ radio button under ‘Show settings’. Click on ‘Video’ preferences, and under ‘General Video Settings’ look for the ‘Disable Screensaver’ checkbox.

14. Skins
VLC supports skins. VLC skins can be downloaded from their site, but VLC also supports winamp 2 and xmps skins. Go to Tools > Preferences. In ‘Interface’, select the ‘Skins’ radio button and load the skin file from here.
