10 Steps to Earning Awesome Grades by Thomas Frank

Becoming a more effective learner and boosting your productivity will help you earn better grades – but it’ll also cut down on your study time. This is a short, meaty book that will guide you through ten steps to achieving those goals:

Pay better attention in class
Take more effective notes
Get more out of your textbooks
Plan like a general
Build a better study environment
Fight entropy and stay organized
Defeat Procrastination
Study smarter
Write better papers
Make group projects suck less
Whether you’re in college or high school, this book will probably help you. But not if you’re a raccoon. I want to be very clear about that; if you’re a raccoon, please buy a different book. This one will do absolutely nothing for you. How did you even learn to read, anyway?
