Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Writing for students and parents, Green (Getting Straight A's) illustrates the importance of doing well in school, using statistics and anecdotes from his own experiences and those of other successful people. In the book's second part, he shares strategies on how to read effectively, do well on tests, and get good grades on papers and other assignments. There are no surprises here: start early, pay attention, attend class, and do the work. Appendixes include a list of 101 great books to read as part of a good education, keywords used on exams, a listing of further resources, and, oddly, a copy of the author's straight-A graduate school transcript. One useful feature is a recap of basic points at the end of each section and chapter. Green's writing is easy to follow, and it doesn't take a large commitment of time to finish his book. VERDICT Green covers the subject well but adds nothing new, given the plethora of similar guides. Many readers may prefer a more exciting presentation with illustrations, but the low paperback price makes this worthwhile if your how-to guides circulate a lot.—Mark Bay, Univ. of the Cumberlands Lib., Williamsburg, KY
