True or False: Tests Stink!

True or False: Tests Stink! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tests are hard. Tests are scary. In fact, tests stink! But no matter how kids (and parents, and teachers) feel about tests, they’re part of life. To succeed in school, kids need to ask, “How can I be a better test-taker?”

This book has the answers. In the tradition of Trevor’s book, How to Do Homework Without Throwing Up, it offers proven strategies and practical advice . . . plus plenty of humor and goofy cartoons. As kids smile and laugh their way through the pages, they’ll discover tips and information that will help them survive and thrive in all kinds of test situations.

Topics include: how to overcome test anxiety, procrastination, and perfectionism; how to prepare for specific types of tests (multiple choice, true-false, timed, take-home, standardized); how to handle cheaters; how to get extra help from tutors, mentors, and/or study groups; the pros and cons of guessing; how to feel better about tests in general; and much more.

Other study guides can be dry, boring, and much toooo lonnnng. True or False? Tests Stink! is fun, entertaining, and (like Trevor’s other books) small but mighty. It can inspire even reluctant and anxious students to do and be their best on test days.

Synopsis:

Proven strategies and practical advice, flavored with jokes and cartoons, help kids do and be their best on test days. Includes test-taking hints, top secret stuff (your first answer is usually right), tips for test day, test-taking do's and don'ts, ways to test your study smarts, how to handle Test Stress, and more. Small but mighty!

About the Author

In addition to writing, illustrating, and speaking at schools, Trevor is a board member of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation and can often be found on the cancer ward at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas, doing his rounds as “Doctor of Mischief.”
