Review:

"THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO BECOMING A MASTER STUDENT is appropriately structured to meet the needs of a 2 hour course. I expect that it would be equally effective and usable for a 1 hour course or even a 3 hour course." -- Andrew Alt, Bowling Green University

"THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO BECOMING A MASTER STUDENT's greatest strength, in all honesty, would be the sincerity of the book. The features convey a sense that the authors are seriously, personally interested in the academic success of their student audience." -- Ryan Guth, Lambuth University
