Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great resource to help you get on the road to ex Have used this book myself and found his 12 question approach a winning aid. It provides interesting strategies to help with many tasks that students are required to do. Found it helpful when studying subjects that did not come naturally (math). Also helpful when dealing with large amounts of information. Helps you think in new ways. Others who have used it have found their marks improved and they were able to "get it" with just a bit more effort or a different approach.

From Our Editors

Robinson eschews conventional methods of study--the underlining of key passages, the taking of voluminous lecture notes, the diligent parroting of answers--and instead teaches students how to get to the core of the material rapidly and memorably through a fail-safe program called Optimum Learning

Employee Review

This is a really helpful book. It's for people who don't usually want or like to put in the time necessary for proper studying. This book shows you that putting the right kind of time investment into your schoolwork will eliminate tardy study practices. The author provides useful examples and step-by-step instructions that boost efficient studying. Most importantly, he speaks directly to the attitude of the student in order to get through to the defiant id in us all. I could tell that the author had been there himself, and so this book does not come across as being contrived or condescending. Highly recommended for those in pupil peril!
