For Middle School and High School Students
Grade 6 Up—This book provides helpful information on topics such as time management, homework organization, note taking, creating outlines, studying for tests and quizzes, grammar, and writing a research paper. Greenberg breaks down each main topic into smaller, more manageable subtopics, giving examples to help illustrate his ideas. Each chapter is peppered with "Brain Ticklers," which are activities/questions to help students put their newly learned skills to use. While the book is aimed at secondary school students, it is accessible to a much larger audience. Much of the information would be useful to students of any age and to parents and/or teachers who work with them on a daily basis. Greenberg's writing style is clear and interesting; he references pop culture and sports icons, which students will enjoy. While the ending feels a bit abrupt, the book is nonetheless a solid resource for most libraries. Middle and high school students would also benefit from having a copy at home.—Sarah K.
