Be honest: we all know what we need to do. So what would actually work? THIS BOOK is the one that offers something truly different. You have the chance to read something extraordinary—the true story of how one smart kid who had no study skills TRANSFORMED herself into a GREAT STUDENT.
Are you a smart kid who coasted by getting good grades with no effort until suddenly you hit a brick wall? This book will really resonate with you. Kimberly tells the story of how she clawed her way from clueless kid to the highest heights of academia, figuring out all these skills the hard way. These super-effective learning techniques took her from one of the top prep schools in the country, to Caltech, and then Princeton. What does it take to succeed at the very best schools? You can’t find this kind of inside information anywhere else.
Part memoir, part how-to, part teacher-confessional, How to Be a Great Student is the no-holds-barred frank words of wisdom from Kimberly Hatch Harrison, co-founder of SOCRATICA.
