Synopsis:

A compact, go-to guide that shows high school students how to study less and retain more, written by an accomplished young educator who speaks their language.

Study Smart, Study Less helps teens identify their study personality type, and then shows them how to work with their type instead of against it by pinpointing unproductive behavior, creating an optimal learning environment, and learning how to enhance memory—to make studying fast, fun, and painless. Crossman also encourages teens to avoid overstudying, take regular breaks to recharge, and reward themselves after hard work. Packed with creative techniques, Study Smart, Study Less empowers students to reap the rewards of a higher GPA without sacrificing their sanity or social life.
