An earnest, comprehensive and “everything-you-need” compendium.


Every teacher, every school, and every class is unique, but there are certain things that successful students have in common no matter where they are. Everyone needs to prioritize well, stay organized, and know how to study for different topics, but actually managing to achieve those goals isn’t easy or straightforward. Make the Grade dissects the school week as students actually experience it—and offers realistic solutions to common problems, from difficult teachers and over-booked schedules to boring homework and the endless variety of (more enjoyable) distractions. Inside you’ll also find:

Sidebars that offer timesaving techniques, confidence-boosting exercises, and creative ways to add new studying skills

Checklists to help ensure you do everything you can to set yourself up for success

Charts and maps that provide clear, concise guidance in navigating difficult subjects and planning for future obstacles
