Editorial Reviews

Kenso Kenso
Entering College for me was like a deer entranced by the headlights, I had no idea of the freight train behind it...Wham! It hit me, and I didn't even have a clue... It never occurred to me to consider how to get organized for the college, how to take notes, how to develop questions to ask, and how to pick out what was really important from the text. This book helped me get it together, otherwise I may have ended up as a drop out...... I made past college and onto a career & family.
Steven McEvoy
This book takes the 80/20 principle and applies it to academics. The authors of this book so believe in it, it has a written guarantee that if you apply it, your average will go up 1 grade point or your money back. The best thing is, not only does it work, it is easy to apply. The longest chapter is 12 pages and with just 12 chapters it is a chapter a week for a term and you will peak for your exams.
