Six Steps to College Success has helped me in many aspects such as sleep, nutrition, time management, distractions, motivation and strategies to study. The lessons I have learned from reading this book have allowed me to live a more efficient life both inside and outside the classroom. This book helped me reduce my study time and improve my scores on exams, quizzes, and homework. Many students work harder not smarter but by applying the strategies that this book teaches, you are able to achieve more for less. The book is a super easy read and the techniques are very easy to follow. My favorite part of this book is step three because it taught me that I did not know how to take notes! I am the type of student who writes down every word the professor says, now this is not a bad thing but it will cause you to spend more energy and time than needed. Step three also teaches you how to put your notes into category charts, for me this was the golden ticket. Learning how to effectively use category charts helped reduce the time I spent looking at my notes. It has also helped me convert the information from short term to long-term memory.
Before Six Steps to College success I was a student that had lost all hope. If I had to describe this book in one word, that word would be HOPE because that is exactly what this book has provided for me. Regardless of where you are in your academic career, each class will require a different method of studying but this book has left nothing out. Stop settling for average because this book comes equipped with everything you need to achieve success at the highest level. Six Steps to College Success is by far the best tool a college student can invest in. As college students we spend money on things that will not return us much for our investment, but I can assure you Six Steps to College Success will be the best investment in your future. This book has forever changed my life.
