Written from a Christian perspective, biblical advice and scripture is used throughout. Learn how to take notes, outline your paper, list your references, review and memorize, and more. This book cuts across all subjects in the curriculum, selects the basic skills, and visually shows how each skill is acquired. It is useful for both teachers and young people.

My 15 y/o son has started to read this book and it is well written and inspiring. He is actually putting into effect the suggestions the book has given, on his own!!! Thank you for such a great guide!
As my children are getting older, I am increasingly concerned that they are equipped with skills for high school and college. A great deal of our focus in the middle school years is on learning study skills, and research and writing skills. This little book is written to the student and covers all aspects of the study process. He spends a great deal of time in the beginning of the book talking about time management. Most of us need help in this area! He shows the student how to chart and manage their time effectively. The rest of the book is dedicated to improving skills, including reading, writing, composition and research. This is the kind of book you could read together with your child, or give to a middle school student to study independently. It’s a valuable investment is your child’s higher education.
