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
