Improve Study Skills with Straight-A Strategies

Avon, MA (January, 2013) – Mother/son team and co-authors Cynthia and Justin Muchnick have joined forces to bring students the best tips, strategies, and proven methods to achieve academic success.  Written for middle school through graduate students, Straight-A Study Skills will help anyone who wants to improve classroom performance. Cynthia, a graduate of Stanford University and former college admission counselor and educational consultant, and Justin, a student at Phillips Academy Andover in Massachusetts, know what it takes to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Their easy-to-implement ideas teach students how to navigate school experiences both inside and outside the classroom.  Through entry-based tips, readers will learn all there is to know about achieving academic success from choosing the right classes and extracurricular activities to developing effective study habits.

This essential book for students has been endorsed by Deans and professionals at Duke University, Stanford University and the University of Chicago, among others.  Read some of their rave reviews below:

“I loved getting a chance to go through your book.  It is truly chock full of great advice for students at every level who want to get the most out of school, and who want to prepare well for the next step in their education.  It provides a valuable service to students, parents, and teachers by encouraging students to take responsibility for their learning.  I really like that; it puts responsibility where it belongs — with the student and how he or she approaches their learning on a very practical level.  There’s a lot here — too much probably for any one student or family to fully absorb.  There are hundreds of pieces of good advice, and I expect parents and children will end up highlighting a dozen or so that they want to focus on.  Taking even some of this advice to heart, and acting on it, will help any student get more out of school.   This could well be one of those books parents and students return to over and over again, to be reminded of the many ways to approach their schooling well.”

-- Christoph Guttentag, Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Duke University

“The Muchnicks’ book is a thoughtful and thorough guide to ways in which student behavior can be changed for the better. I have no doubt that any student who takes their recommendations seriously will learn better, be a more successful student, and will productively apply these lessons to all of life’s work.”

-- Ted O'Neill, Former Dean of Admissions and Current Lecturer in Humanities in the College of the University of Chicago

“This book is essential reading for students who want practical advice and a strategic plan for achieving success in the classroom and beyond.  Whether you are in middle school, high school, or college, Straight-A Study Skills provides insights and strategies that will help you to become the best student you can be.”

--Jody Maxmin, Associate Professor of Art History and Classics at Stanford University

“The life of a student in our increasingly technological and global world is growing more complex with every passing year.  Written by the mother-and-son team of Cynthia and Justin Muchnick, one of our Phillips Academy students, this book is a helpful how-to guide for young people and their parents wishing to cut through the clutter.  The Muchnicks offer hundreds of specific tips and general good sense, which should prove useful to a generation of learners seeking to make the most of their education.”

-- John Palfrey, Head of School at Phillips Academy Andover

“I'm so proud that Cindy, a former intern of mine, and her son, Justin, are helping young people reach their academic and personal potential.”

-- U.S. Senator, Barbara Boxer
