Children's Literature - Mary Sue PreissnerFry's series of seven books about how to study are aimed primarily at adults. However, children in middle school also will be able to understand the language and benefit from them, albeit doing so with parental assistance would be most helpful. Each book covers its topic in a clear and organized fashion, often referencing another book in the series for more information. Bold text introduces chapter, sub-topics, and provides emphasis for important points. The chapter on "computer-ese" in Use Your Computer is actually a helpful 14-page glossary of computer terms. Fry writes about word processing programs to help prepare papers and to take notes, going online to undertake research, and makes many suggestions to help students use the latest technology to get the best grade possible. He succeeds in keeping the information concise using simple language, and offers practical suggestions with a dose of humor. The book contains an index.
