Become an A student and get better grades with the study skills activities in this book. This tried and true resource has been recommended by Sylvan Learning for years. Starting with the five basic skills of the most successful students, School Success covers dozens of invaluable learning techniques for getting the most out of school: flowcharting, active questioning, super note-taking, mind-mapping, storyboarding, memorizing, visualizing, knowing your learning style, developing winning attitudes and more.
This is an all-around exceptional book for greater student empowerment!
The information is presented in an interactive workbook format that gets you thinking and responding right away, integrating experience and personality with powerful skills and winning attitudes that can be put to use immediately. Although it is suitable for adults, this book is designed particularly for teenagers who are getting too little out of — or getting too little into, their education.
"This book will not only improve students' performance, it will change their lives."
