Every teacher, school, and class is unique, but there are certain things that successful students have in common no matter what. Make the Grade helps students everywhere stay on top of schoolwork by dissecting the school week as students actually experience it, and offering realistic solutions to common problems, from difficult teachers and over-booked schedules to boring homework and the endless variety of distractions. The book also includes sections on memory tricks, reading tips, note-taking, organization, and test preparation.
