Book Description

Terrific as an 8th grade graduation gift!

Do you know teens entering high school who are concerned about the next stage of their lives?  How well will they do in high school?  What about the big obstacle of applying to college?

While HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE is ideally targeted at students entering 9th grade, the information can be of valuable help to students at any grade in high school.

And this book is NOT only for the best students. This book is expressly written for all students -- encouraging them to follow their passions.

I would love for parents, teachers and mentors to read this book and then recommend it to the teens they know.

And if you know older young people, there are two more books in this series for them:

How to Succeed in College and Prep for Beyond College

How to Succeed Beyond College

Bonus:  All 3 books include exercises to encourage teens and young adults to practice the skills that can help them in high school, college and beyond.

Phyllis Zimbler Miller has an M.B.A. from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and coaches high school students on their college applications using the marketing principles in this book.

Editorial Reviews


★★★★★   Review - How to Succeed in High School and Prep for College by Phyllis Zimbler Miller, M.B.A. by Jon Siegelman, Ph.D. of (abbreviated and used with permission):

I highly recommend this book. 5 stars.

I had not heard of the author until she followed my Twitter account. I also took a peek at her LinkedIn account; her experience is in marketing and speechwriting (she has also written novels and screenplays). What, no college counseling? I offered to read and review this book with the understanding that my report would be an honest one, and Ms. Miller agreed.

As I began to read, I was impressed. Before I reached the midpoint, I was converted. How to Succeed is a must read for students who are committed to playing the college entrance game to win.

The book is available in Kindle format (text-to-speech is enabled) for $9.99, and was 247 pages long on my iPad. It is not meant to be a comprehensive overview of the entire college application process. However, it is chock full of useful advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Roadmap! December 22, 2012
By Jerrye
Format:Kindle Edition
Phyllis Zimbler Miller's book, How to Succeed in High School and Prep for College, is a wonderful road map and detailed guide for helping students succeed in high school and prepare for college. As a former teacher, and parent of two kids who went to college and graduate school, I can relate to the need to prepare years in advance. Her book will make both parents and students aware of the importance of high school success and early preparation for college. The book is well written, easy to read, very organized and includes specific steps for high school success and college preparation.

To recap what the author says in her book's description, "This first book contains information specific to high school success and applying to colleges as well as information to help young people with interviewing, creating relationships with potential mentors, and following their passions. Exercises that build on the information are included."

I would highly recommend this book for both parents and students. As the author has stressed, it is imperative that high school students prepare for college as early as the eighth grade. If you are an eighth-grade student or older, don't delay. It could make all the difference!

** Be sure to check out book two and three in this series.
