    Practical and straight-forward - A must-read

    I turned to this book when I realized my child, a high school freshman, was struggling in school because he lacked the study skills he needed to succeed. The information in this book was straight-forward, practical, and made studying seem like a "piece of cake". I used it to help my son learn how to study independently and effectively; so far it's worked! I highly recommend this book to any student who wants to improve their grades, and use their time effectively.
