    READ BEFORE YOU BUY

    This book seems like it is for a student; however, it is mostly based for parents. This guy talks too much about himself and how well he succeeded. He teaches you the basics, stuff everyone already knows. There is little talk about tips that are actually helpful. I would expect so much more but i guess you get what you pay for!

    Title is Misleading

    I thought this book was interesting and helpful to a degree but not a tool for getting better grades. It was a good book on organizing your time between homework and extracurricular activities and he gave many helpful tips on what to look for and do for college and post college acceptance . He definitely let us know, many times in the lecture, how accomplished his is. Good for him but for someone looking to improve on their own academics, he makes one feel like they aren’t measuring up so what’s the use.
    Overall, a good audio to help organize oneself to prepare for higher learning but not a good book for getting better grades. Thus, this title is very much misleading.
    P. S. His voice is very charismatic and keeps your attention so I’m sure other audios from him are worth the time.
