The book is practical and gets down to business from the very beginning of the book. The chapters are small and easy to follow with step-by-step instruction that makes the changes / suggestions easy to implement. While there are 47 chapters in the book, they all flow well together and I could easily see how the topics interact with one another.
Some of the ideas are ones that I could see as common sense., but that would not stop me from recommending the book, as they still are solid recommendations and ones that will definitely help a child to succeed academically as well as build a solid foundation so that when they make the transition to high school they are ready!
Parents who were themselves strong students might consider the information on the basic side- but they need to take a step back and carefully examine whether they or anyone else have ever actually taught these study skills to their children. I found myself constantly saying to myself, "Oh, yeah, I need to make sure my student knows how to do ____." Sure, *I* know how to take good notes from a lecture or make up a study schedule or guess intelligently on a test or the other study skills discussed in the book. But I cannot just assume that my student knows how to do these things. "Help Your Kids Get Better Grades" is an excellent road-map for parents to follow in making sure their children learn how to be successful students. Not every child is Ivy League material, but following the advice in Mr. Howard's book will help all students do the best they can in school and make the most of their individual potential.
In compliance with 16 CFR Part 255, I hereby disclose that I received a free copy of this book from the author. I was not required to write a review of any sort and would have written the same review had I purchased a copy out of my own pocket.
While this book is intended for Middle and High School students and their parents. Anyone with a child in school will benefit from this no nonsense book.
Mr. Howard covers everything from Note taking to, reminders, learning strategies, test preparation strategies and more.
I wish this book was available when I was a kid. Reviewing my notes at night meant rewriting them and this is a strategy covered in the book. The information is still fresh in your head and you can elaborate on the information noted during the day.
There are 47 chapters of easy to follow instruction. Broken down into the simplest format for reading and understanding for even middle school students.
Mr. Howard also discusses having a plan upon entering high school and how to do your best on test allowing for your best possible grade.
I believe I would have been a different student had this book been given to me.
