Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up"Ace" is written in six chapters and presents information on test anxiety; time management; study techniques; and standardized, objective, and written test-taking techniques for adolescent and older students. Fry includes photocopyable charts to aid in organization and promotes other titles in his study series. The information is generally clear, but the author's constant interjection of off-the-cuff comments and forced humor interfere with the focus and tend to be annoying. How to Study is more clearly written with less divergence. It contains a valuable chapter on the hook up and use of on-line services to gather information. Other chapters cover note-taking, attitude, time management, reading skills, and library-research techniques. These two titles do contain worthwhile information and will probably be put to their best use in schools or continuing-education programs or in the hands of teachers and guidance counselors who can winnow out the superfluous from the essential.Joan Soulliere, Wenham Public Library, MA
From the Publisher
These clear and encouraging books promote good study habits. Fry addresses the reader directly, in a friendly and sympathetic fashion. Students in any field will benefit from any or all of these user-friendly books.

Here is the key to any child's academic success.

From Barnes & Noble
Here's an excellent antidote to the biggest cause of stress and anxiety among students today. This essential book walks test-takers through successful test preparation, including reading for maximum retention and researching the teacher's test-giving history. In his usual step-by-step approach, Fry shows you how to: * stay focused on studying--even for long periods of time * answer correctly by process of elimination * write the best-organized essay possible * psych up for test day and apply what you've learned.
