Have you ever been overwhelmed with your revision?

In all the years I have been helping FITPROs to pass their exams, then biggest issue that I see people struggle with is overwhelm.

I hear daily about being Overwhelmed…

  • with the volume of topics they have to learn and remember.
  • by not knowing WHAT to learn, in WHAT order or WHAT will come up on exam day
  • by the sheer lack of support and guidance they thought they’d get from their training provider
  • and always feeling like they’re behind… or never good enough.
  • by the thought of even starting your revision.

and when you do start… you sit down, make BIG long lists of what to do, where to start, and what to read?

making 100’s of notes, rewriting the manual and using more highlighter pen than 𝚙𝚕𝚊𝚒𝚗 𝚝𝚎𝚡𝚝

Most of this overwhelm can be easily combatted by someone else showing you exactly WHAT you need to learn and in what order. This means that when you sit down to revise, you know waht you are doing,

and revising feels easier…

which will help you boost your confidence and self belief that you can pass with confidence

How to structure your revision to learn without overwhelm

Having a set deadline, for example 4 weeks,

and a list of the content, for example 8 video tutorials or 50 muscles.

This allows you to reverse engineer your revision plan, spreading your learning out between now and your deadline

This means you cant get stuck in the trap of repeating hte same modules of content for weeks nad weeks with little to no progress. Instead you take action, and gather momentum with confidence, allowing time for recapping at the end.

If you know there are 8 modules to learn, you can set the target of 2 per week.

If you know there are 50 muscles to learn you spread them out as 2 per day over 25 days (with a couple of extra days on the end).

Here’s an example of how you could spread out your learning over 4 weeks:

Testing your knowledge with specificity

It can be tempting to ask yourself open questions like:

  • “what do i know about the heart?”
  • “explain everything about a muscle”
  • “recall the entire module”

but in reality this doesnt help.

It’s like asking a 5 year old what they did at school today … the answer is always “I dont know” or “nothing”

But if you asked a specific quesiton like “what colour was the spider you made at school today” they would know the asnwer

The same applies in your revision…

dont ask yourself open quesitons. Instead ask very specific questiosn to test knowledge with clarity

Use our Mock Questions to ask yourself very targeted and specific questions, it will be much like the questions you get on your exam…

and it will give you good clarity of stronger and weaker areas of your knwoledge:
