Outstanding!!!

Very well done and so relevant for any student. We listened on a recent family trip over several days. Our 10th, 9th and even 4th grader learned some great study ideas. At one point during the program, our 10th grader started laughing from the back seat. That being said, the material is presented in some very hilarious ways. Thank you Dr Rogers.

Great information, terrible narrator.

I loved the principles and lessons taught in this book, however the narrator made it sound like I was listening to a book on how to effectively murder someone. He sounded creepy and like a stereotypical pedophile.

A must read for College Students

This book has helped me so much as an accounting major. From how to read faster to condensed notes, it has all been easy and helpful to implement. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Not what I expected

I got this for my kids, 11 and 13, and we started listening in the car on the way to school. It was meant to inspire them and give them tips to improve study methods. It was advertised as a teenage version, which I took to mean that it would be accessible to younger audience. What I found was that it was full of swearwords, used unnecessarily and gratuitously. We could not continue with the book, despite whatever pearls of wisdom may have been hidden within.

Several effective methods!

Best book I have ever read/listened to about studying methods. I was skeptical in the beginning because of the unnecessary funny comments (though I admit I found myself laughing at some comments towards the second half of the book), but I am glad I finished the book. Now I feel ready and confident about creating a study plan for myself!

I'm not a teenager, and I thought it was great!

Because this version was targeted toward keeping teenagers interested, the narrator used great, engaging tonal narration and kept it interesting. I wish more audiobooks were this engaging.

The humor was clearly targeted towards teenagers.

The topics included several gems!

His methods really do work.

First couple of weeks into my doctorate I was getting high C's/low B's on exams. Within two weeks of listening to this audiobook and incorporating some of his study habits, my very next two exams were A's. The first two in that specific class were a D & B prior to using his methods. It really is a way to succeed in academics and in learning. Period. Highly recommend.

What did you like best about this story?

Colorful and engaging this has catapulted my effort to a more productive level.

The author has seen the downside of being a struggling student and demonstrates that a struggle is what inspired him to take up the challenge of overcoming his own limits.

I laughed a lot as I could see my own shortcomings and the hope of overcoming them.
