Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8. This clever book provides some solid, as well as creative, suggestions for students who hate to do homework. The table of contents lists numbered "gripes," instead of chapters, including boredom, lack of time, memorizing, writer's block, book report pain, project panic, and pre-test jitters. The tips come from a survey of 300 high school juniors and seniors. Suggestions range from those as trite as taking periodic breaks from the grind to ideas such as doing repetitive exercises in various ink colors. There is nothing really new or unique here, but the information is presented in a user-friendly, humorous format that will appeal to young people. From the short "chapters" to the amusing black-line cartoons, this title just may provide a few students with a useful tool or two.?Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CA

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. Questionnaires based on the homework gripes of 100 fourth-to eighth-graders were submitted to 300 high-school students who've mastered the homework blues. The resulting study tips, on everything from dealing with boredom to memorizing lists to organizing time, comprise this useful compendium. Whether children will pick up a book about such an unpopular subject is chancy, but the lively cartoon graphics will certainly help, and there's lots of plain good sense behind the teenagers' homework recommendations.

I really enjoyed reading this book! Although sometimes I really try to follow the good advice the book has, it's really hard! This year though since I'm entering my second year of middle school, I'm going to use more of the information the book has so I can get straight A's! Lot's of the tips have gotten me bonuses on book reports, assignments and other homework. If your bored of homework - get this book! If your running out of time to do your homework - get this book! I really recommend this homework hepler!
