Principles of
       Quality           over         Quantity

Whether studying a passage, chapter, or topic, Quantity studies make a variety of points. Assuming all are good points, there is an inverse relationship between the number of points and the ability for participants to retain, much less synthesize the information into their lives.

Whether studying a passage, chapter, or topic, Quality studies focus on the strategy to have participants discover one key point, experiencing a variety of concepts that direct the discovery of that point. 


The variety of concepts, conversation, and analysis reinforce retention, and the ability for participants synthesize the information into their lives.
