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:

Tips, tricks, and advice for students looking to get organized, study better, and gain more control over their academic lives.

Filled with advice on how to hit the campus running, this fun-spirited crash course in the rules of college provides tools to equip students for a lifetime of learning. A thorough revision of the popular guide to all things college, with three completely new chapters on research papers, theories of learning, and Q&As. Includes helpful sidebars, such as sad-but-true student stories, study tips, and info for nontraditional students, as well as special coaching for struggling students.
