Dr. Green has drawn on his 20-year career as an educator to address the needs of younger students with a practical guide targeted to students, parents and teachers. The Green philosophy: there is no such thing as a mediocre student (only mediocre results). You study hard. You memorize. You work at a problem over and over until it feels like your head is going to explode. You think, finally I'm ready for the big test. And you still don't make the grade. Relax. The truth is, Dr. Gordon Green knows exactly how you feel. He was a bright student. And he studied hard, too. But he struggled his freshman year at college anyway. What happened? He developed a unique ten-step program based on the simple principle that academic success is not so much a question of how hard you study, but how smart you study. Did it work? After college, Dr. Green went on to earn a Ph.D. in economics at a prestigious university--all the while maintaining straight A's! Thousands of student have benefited from his program. How he has adapted his study methods to apply to you. This is an easy, do-it-yourself guide to help you turn frustration into success.
