Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?"Ace" is written in six chapters and presents information on test anxiety; time management; study techniques; and standardized, objective, and written test-taking techniques for adolescent and older students. Fry includes photocopyable charts to aid in organization and promotes other titles in his study series. The information is generally clear, but the author's constant interjection of off-the-cuff comments and forced humor interfere with the focus and tend to be annoying. How to Study is more clearly written with less divergence. It contains a valuable chapter on the hook up and use of on-line services to gather information. Other chapters cover note-taking, attitude, time management, reading skills, and library-research techniques. These two titles do contain worthwhile information and will probably be put to their best use in schools or continuing-education programs or in the hands of teachers and guidance counselors who can winnow out the superfluous from the essential.?Joan Soulliere, Wenham Public Library, MA

Offers practical test taking tips and is a nice first read for college students. If you enjoyed this book, you'll surely like "Major in Success", by Patrick Combs. I teach at a University and this book changes lives.

I found this book by pure chance and sent it to my Nephew who was failing misserably in the 11th grade. His biggest problem was anxiety to taking tests and getting organized. He has read this book twice and since then has passed every test this year with a breeze. He gave this book to a friend that has had the same problems, hopefully he too will turn it around.
I am so happy I found something so simple with so much common sense to give to my Nephew, and at so little cost. This book in my opinion is priceless and a must have tool for success.

Format: Paperback
[We are a non-profit group just out to help avid readers like ourselves get the best for their buck. Book opinions tested on college level students.]
Advantages of this book are: It is small. Quick to read. Easy to follow. Print easy on eyes. On good quality starched paper. Inexpensive.
Nice pleasant reading. And because it's so cheap why not get one.
Unfortunately, Ace ANY Test didn't pass our test on profound usefulness so we gave it one thumb up because in our opinion: *It is not geared for levels above SAT - a fact not mentioned on the cover (how could one book ever cover grade school to PhD adequately in 96 pages?). *The content is flippant cliche, ie, reams of COMMON sense OBVIOUS pointers but where's the nitty gritty stuff that shows a real in-depth knowledge of what students go through.
So in summary... Ron, we think we liked you better with our burgers and french fries :)

I paid $2 & felt ripped off. This is the worst study guide/self help book ever. Don't waste your time.
