-- Can disco dancing improve your grades? Did you ever learn how to study while skateboarding?
Does reading backwards help you learn? These and other unique, sometimes off beat, academic success tools are gathered into newly published 101 Secrets to Passing Any Test (ISBN 0983770301). Students in Junior High, High School and College level studies can immediately benefit from fun, easy ‘secrets’ which give them practical ways to manage school, cure common test problems and study more effectively. Author and School Skills founder Chris Tobias says “This book is not just for students who struggle. We see students with ‘medium’ grades making big improvements with only a few basic skills. They are also more confident, relaxed and find school to be a lot more fun.”
Families can also use the quick ‘browsing’
format of 101 Secrets to Passing Any Test to find solutions to specific school problems without having to dig through an entire textbook. Struggling with a tough teacher? That’s on page 163. Portland parent Laura says “My daughter and I are reading one skill each night from your book and talking about how she can use them at school. She loves it!” Students like Junior High Derrick are amazed to find that they can quickly improve their grades “Wow, this stuff really works!” and High School Sophomore Karen wonders “How come nobody told me this stuff before?”. 101 Secrets to Passing Any Test includes both time-tested academic skills and innovative ideas based on the latest brain research. All combined into one easy, complete ‘backpack’
book that’s fun to read.
Students and parents will find 101 Secrets to Passing Any Test especially helpful during the dark days of winter as school workloads pile up and in the spring when final exams loom. Audiences can also subscribe to online School Skills web magazine from www.SchoolSkills.net for more encouragement and updated skills. Parents should find the Parents Guide from www.SchoolSkills.net under ‘Parents’ helpful in many ways.
