When Geetanjali requested that her book be featured on this blog, I was happy to accept her request. After reading a sample of her book from Amazon, I became downright enthusiastic about the prospect because she uses psychology that is supported by research to help readers learn how to study.
The book's description on Amazon is as follows:
"Do you wish you could get better grades? Do you struggle with certain subjects and believe that maybe you're not cut out for them? Do you want to spend less time studying and still get good grades? Maybe you think that some subjects are just not for you. Maybe you don't like to study, because you secretly believe that you just don't have what it takes, so why bother? Maybe you are a parent, worrying about your child's grades, worrying whether they will be able to qualify for the opportunities you want for them.
Studying for tests and exams can be stressful, not just for students, but also for teachers and parents. Grades in school exams and standardized tests can seem to determine your entire future, and yet many students are not able to get the grades they think they need to succeed.
This book draws on research from the fields of psychology and neuroscience, and gives you practical advice that you can implement right away, to overcome procrastination, make the most of your study time and improve your grades significantly.
Anyone Can Get An A+ contains 39 tips on various aspects of studying and preparing for exams. In this book, you will learn:
- How best to prepare for exams
- What is the top mistake most students make when doing exam preparation and how to avoid it
- How to overcome procrastination and use your study time wisely
- How to break down larger assignments into smaller chunks
- How to use small segments of time effectively
- How to get help to understand difficult material"
Note from CharityWhat I gathered from the sample that I read on Amazon, the psychology and advice in Anyone Can Get an A+ are similar to what I learned from academic advisors, professors, and my personal advisor in college. I managed to make straight A's in all of my classes, except for one; I made the Dean's List every year that I was in college; and I was accepted into an honor society.
It is not a gimmick, or magic; it is an understanding that studying is a skill, one that has to be learned and practiced in order to be effective.
