This is an awesome resource for any parent, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, grandparent and anyone who wants to help a child get into college. Not only does the author discuss scholarship opportunities, Dr. Artis also provides step by step instructions for students from 9th-12th grade. The author discusses the importance of maintaining good grades, developing study skills and using school guidance counselors as a resource (for information on college tours and scholarships).

Getting ready for college is a process that cannot be taken lightly. Stop what you're doing and order this book for yourself, your family, your friends, your churchmembers and keep an extra copy on hand just in case you think of someone else who needs help preparing for college!!

Moving from Ordinary to Extraordinary is an empowering read! Dr. Artis does an excellent job providing young readers with the tools to help them be successful in their educational pursuits. This is a must have for teens transitioning from middle school into high school and beyond. Dr. Artis has provided a natural balance between methods and personal stories from her own journey.

An added benefit is that the themes and methods, taught by Dr. Artis, are useful for adult readers as well. I found myself not only being motivated, but empowered to be more organized about the goals that I pursue. I've already started to recommend this book to parents, educators and students. This is an excellent resource to help prepare students for college as well as other areas of life.

If there was ever a resource worth pushing for young people that desire information about how to become high achievers, this is it. From my experience, what holds back many students from reaching their full potential is a lack of practical information about the steps to take in order to get there. Dr. Artis manages to provide lessons that many individuals that end up being successful must learn along their journey. This book is great for those that are well on their way to achieving their dreams and is a must have for those that need that extra push to be all they can be. I highly recommend it
