1. What is your learning style?

2. Which strategies (methods) can you use to study more effectively?

  • Research of Providers of Funds for Study and Career Purposes
  • Post-school (tertiary) training is very expensive. It is often the high cost of training that prevents us from following the career that we have always dreamt of.

However, there are ways of overcoming this stumbling-block. If we seek information on how to obtain funds for our studies in time, we can save ourselves and our parents a great deal of worry.

Here are a few hints:

1)first of all you must examine your own situation

a) Has provision already been made for studies? Parents sometimes take out study insurance policies for their children as a means of providing for their future studies. Have your parents done this?

b) If your parents have made provision, is it sufficient to cover the costs of the course you intend to follow? Costs often rise so rapidly that a policy that was taken out a few years before is no longer sufficient to cover all the costs.

c) If your affairs are all in order, you have no reason to worry any further. However, if no money has been put aside for this purpose, or if the available funds are insufficient, you will have to make further plans. A proper education is simply too important to allow it to fall by the wayside.

2)what can you do about the situation?

a) You can postpone your studies and work for a while in order to save up some money.

b) You can study part time and work part time, so that you can help to cover some of the costs. This option demands a great deal of self-knowledge, because it takes tremendous self-discipline to earn money and to feel independent, but still to be so dedicated that you are willing to use your time and money to carry on with your studies. You might not attend classes now, or you may be working for part of the day and attending lectures during other times of the day. Now you must decide on your own how to manage your time and stick to an effective schedule.

c) You can apply for financial assistance in order to finance your studies.

3)financing your studies

There are different possibilities that you can try:

A)study bursaries

  • It is financial assistance that is granted to a student on the grounds of excellent achievement.
  • There are usually no work or repayment obligations for the student.
  • Study bursaries are more readily available in certain fields of study such as chemistry, engineering and commerce.

B)bursary loans

  • You can apply for a bursary.
  • It is financial assistance that is given to a student so that he / she can train or study for a profession.
  • An applicant is usually expected to have a good academic record and really to need the financial help.
  • There is usually some obligation connected to a bursary loan. A student is usually expected to work for the institution that provided the bursary for a certain period, or to repay the amount after completion of his / her studies.


  • Your parents make a loan from a bank.
  • A loan is granted on the grounds of your parents’ relationship with the bank where they do their business.
  • A loan must always be repaid after the studies have been completed.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
