Education is not so much a book to be read but a guide to be followed.
For Students - Think of it as a road map on how to study, avoid pitfalls, secure resources, and become inspired to earn better grades and graduate. It also provides useful advice on how to team-up with peers and adult partners for making your climb to the head of the class easier. Decide which strategies and best practices are most useful for you to implement when targeting and transforming bad study habits into good ones.
For Parents and Mentors - This book serves as a guide to assist you in your important work. Whether you are a TRIO professional, school guidance counselor, a youth worker in a community center or member of a religious network who looks out for the welfare of young people, this book will add value to your mission.
For Teachers and Tutors - You need to read and heed valuable strategies for guiding learners to excel. The practical advice contained herein will resonate with your role as educators. There is no more important work for all of us than to guide young people to enter the age of knowledge eager to win the future through education.
The Steps to Success:
- Excel by completing school tasks early

- Stop yielding to tech driven distractions
- Stop pursuing logical paths to wrong destinations
