Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every teacher, every school, and every class is unique, but there are certain things that successful students have in common no matter where they are. Everyone needs to prioritize well, stay organized, and know how to study for different topics, but actually managing to achieve those goals isnt easy or straightforward. Make the Grade dissects the school week as students actually experience it—and offers realistic solutions to common problems, from difficult teachers and over-booked schedules to boring homework and the endless variety of (more enjoyable) distractions. Inside youll also find:

  • Sidebars that offer timesaving techniques, confidence-boosting exercises, and creative ways to add new studying skills
  • Checklists to help ensure you do everything you can to set yourself up for success
  • Charts and maps that provide clear, concise guidance in navigating difficult subjects and planning for future obstacles

Synopsis:

A mini-fridge, a debit card, and a copy of "College Rules!: " the essentials of any successful college experience. Teachers, counselors, family, and friends spend endless hours helping students get into college, but few can prepare them for what to do once they're there. Lesson #1: College is different from high school, and even seniors graduating at the top of their class will benefit from practical advice on how to make a successful transition to college. "College Rules!" is professors Sherrie Nist and Jodi Patrick Holschuh's crash course on college success. It thoroughly and humorously covers all the bases of maximizing the college experience, including studying smarter not harder; handling stress; staying motivated; preparing for and taking exams; and of course, balancing work and play.
