    This book is filled with very valuable information but for students who struggle with reading or learning it isn't formatted in a way to encourage them to keep reading.

My middle school children have a course called high school prep, this would be perfect for them or for high school seniors as a refresher for college.

    I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway win. I never read self-help books but was intrigued by the author's background as a doctor of Neurology. I was an excellent student with what seemed like unusual studying habit, and an atypical brain, and was curious about his findings. It turns out that my study habits were indeed excellent, although I came up with them on my own as a child, so I didn't learn anything from the book. However, if I recall a lot of my peer at the time, this book will be I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway win.

However, if I recall a lot of my peer at the time, this book will be particularly useful for people in high school and college. From the way the book is organized and written, I believe they are his target audience. It's written like a school paper, and, although easy to read, there's a whole lot of repetition and you should feel free to gloss over a lot of the boxes, or only read the boxes. I hope the book does help the students who need better studying habits. I just don't know if it's something you can learn from reading a book.

    Actually a good book very scientific approach from a medical doctor. Some common sense tips that might be to obvious to be recognized by most people but still have a good impact on our learning. The key information in this book is, that you should take care of your brain, preview and review material with every study session, visualize and make many associations with things you already now.

Some common sense tips that might be to obvious to be recognized by most people but still have a good impact on our learning. The key information in this book is, that you should take care of your brain, preview and review material with every study session, visualize and make many associations with things you already now. Interesting was the number transcription method and the small excurse on the memory palace method, which isn't that easy to learn. Always go from the generalization to the details not vice versa, as the big picture is that what you will remember and from that you are going to derive the details. Also be sure to stay organized write clearly and in general take care of yourself. All in all solid book, nothing ground-breaking but nicely written and including good sources.

    This is an absolute must read for any aspiring student, high school or college. As a senior citizen, I so wish I had had access to this book so much earlier in my Academic life. Most of my learning now comes from reading, and watching video courses, this book actually encourages me to attend classes where additional communication with teachers and other students would enhance my continued learning experiences. Loved the book!

    I just received the book today and finished it rather quickly. As a mother of a senior in high school, this will be a very helpful resource for him now and in the near future. This is a must read for any student, but especially for those who struggle with time management, organization and study skills.

    Mostly a review for me. However, very good tips and methods for new college students who have gaps in their study skills. There are a few things that I picked up that I will be using on the students I tutor.
