Tips from 300 top high school students for successfully handling homework and preparing for tests.
School Library JournalGr 5-8This clever book provides some solid, as well as creative, suggestions for students who hate to do homework. The table of contents lists numbered "gripes," instead of chapters, including boredom, lack of time, memorizing, writer's block, book report pain, project panic, and pre-test jitters. The tips come from a survey of 300 high school juniors and seniors. Suggestions range from those as trite as taking periodic breaks from the grind to ideas such as doing repetitive exercises in various ink colors. There is nothing really new or unique here, but the information is presented in a user-friendly, humorous format that will appeal to young people. From the short "chapters" to the amusing black-line cartoons, this title just may provide a few students with a useful tool or two.Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CA
