Among the ten books I have read for this age group, this book is in the top group. It is oriented around learning styles, which may not be immediately understandable or useful to kids who are struggling (it often takes an adult to explain learning styles to a youngster and help the young person practice the understanding), but the sections on communication, reading comprehension, note-taking, homework, memorization, and test-taking were all very good.

One item which is missing from most books of this sort is the concept of "desire." A youngster has to want to improve in order to make gains.

If I were teaching a study skills class to early high schoolers, I probably would use this book. For middle schoolers, I would use Laurie Rozakis' Super Study Skills. For late high schoolers and early college-age students, I would use William Luckie's Study Power.

As a high school English teacher I have always wanted to have a book I could give my students to learn study skills. Study Strategies Made Easy provides practical information and important study skills such as planning for long term reports, how to study for tests, note-taking, organization, and how to improve you memory. These strategies, and the others in this wonderful book, give students the edge they need to be successful.

Study strategies are often overlooked in school, yet they are the tools students need to succeed. The authors have included many strategies to help kids stay organized, take tests, do research reports, take notes, and study. I would highly recommend this for middle and high school students.

Format: Paperback
This book does a good job of describing study strategies. However, I think that the book, SURVEY OF 300 A+ STUDENTS: A+ STUDENTS DESCRIBE THEIR ACADEMIC STRATEGIES, by Kenneth Green (from Harvard) is a bit better (which I think deserves 5 stars).

I teach Study Skills for 7th graders. This book is easily accessible and full of great strategies and suggestions for this age group. I highly recommend it for any middle school teacher whose students are less than successful academically.

GET THIS BOOK! This soft bound book is formatted for 6th through 12th graders, although college students who may be struggling to get organized could certainly benefit from it. This book helps a student (and parents and teachers) to identify the students' best learning styles (often overlooked) and then addresses the best ways to help a student learn. Many people don't realize that visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners need different tools to help them learn more effectively AND more easily! This book will help with those challenges. I have read many other Study Skills books in order to try and help my students and this is the one I will keep and recommend to students and parents.

I teach study skills to 6th graders. Once I found this resource it became our textbook. The material is good for all levels. The presentation makes it usable for young people and the content is applicable to any level of student.
