My results and those of my ‘students’ speak for themselves. The stuff I write about in my study book works – if your kids are using them all, then they should be getting TOP GRADES already and don’t need a book on how to get the best grades with the least amount of effort.
If they are NOT getting top grades, well they are either not that bright or not leveraging the strategies properly.
I trust it’s not leveraging the strategies.
90% of students are smart enough, but just don’t have good study habits and strategies.
In fact the BEST results are from students who are not that bright BUT are open-minded to try anything to get better results. Their desperation opens their minds to the possibilities whereas the brighter ones just think they know it all.
I don’t know your kids, but I have a suggestion – First, buy my study book. It comes with an 8-week 100% Money-Back Guarantee from ClickBank so there is NO RISK.
Then give the study book to all of your kids WITH YOUR ENDORSEMENT AND POSITIVE ENCOURAGEMENT. Have them come back with their feedback ONCE THEY’VE TRIED A FEW OF THE STRATEGIES…
Let that be the test – the ultimate test. Without YOUR BIAS.
Your screening and interpretation of the content isn’t relevant – YOU HAVE A LOT MORE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAN THEY DO. What you think they need is not what they need. They are the only ones who can judge whether or not this can and does help them.
I have taught these strategies to HUNDREDS of students and I can say without any doubt that the PARENTS of those kids would have probably thought the same thing you’re thinking this is straight forward stuff – but it was about the KIDS’ perceptions, needs and results – NOT the parent’s interpretation.
If you play a sport at a competitive level, something as mundane as ‘watch or keep your eye on the ball’ seems simplistic. In squash for example, if I see that you are NOT watching the ball, there is no chance of you winning a point against me. I will exploit it EFFORTLESSLY. It is a KEY skill that every beginner needs to learn. The sooner, the better. But for an experienced player, it’s a ‘given’…
That being said, I published my study book as an eBook to get these strategies to as many students as possible – I believe in higher education and I also believe that too many people make it too hard for the average student to get better grades… These strategies work – if and only if the STUDENT has an open mind and believes they work and that he/she can make them work.
If you think they work, they work, If you don’t think they work, they don’t.
Either way, you’re right.
Go on and give them the gift of better grades right now – there is NO RISK and only upside – their grades will only improve and they will spend LESS TIME studying, worrying and getting stressed about exams.
If you’re wondering if this study book is applicable to younger kids – the answer is simple. If they can read, they can understand these strategies. In fact the younger students are MORE open to this mindset than the older kids. The older they get, the more entrenched in their beliefs they become.
Which is why MOST high school and university students don’t learn how to study properly because they THINK they know how and never research it. That’s why when a student uses these strategies, they’ll get better grades than their classmates!
Parents: Help Your Kids Get Better Grades
This page is dedicated for parents who want to help their kids get better grades. These study tools tips and techniques are designed for you to help your kids of any age, the earlier you help them, the better!
The first tool is a program developed by Pat Wyman, that helps you identify your child’s learning style so you can help him her learn HOW to learn. It’s a valuable tool that I highly recommend as an alternative to high-priced learning deficiency evaluations.
If your your child is struggling with reading, you might want to consider this strategy…

Rules Kids Won’t Learn in School
Rule #1. Life is not fair. Get used to it. The average teenager uses the phrase “it’s not fair” 8.6 times a day. You got it from your parents, who said it so often you decided they must be the most idealistic generation ever. When they started hearing it from their own kids, they realized Rule #1.
Rule #2. The real world won’t care as much about your self-esteem as your school does. It’ll expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself. This may come as a shock. Usually, when inflated self-esteem meets reality, kids complain that it’s not fair. (See Rule No. 1)
Rule #3. Sorry, you won’t make $50,000 a year right out of high school. And you won’t be a vice president or have a car phone either. You may even have to wear a uniform that doesn’t have a Gap label.
Rule #4. If you think your teacher is tough, wait ’til you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure, so he tends to be a bit edgier. When you screw up, he is not going ask you how feel about it.
Rule #5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it opportunity. They weren’t embarrassed making minimum wage either. They would have been embarrassed to sit around talking about Fifty Cent all weekend.
Rule #6. It’s not your parents’ fault. If you screw up, you are responsible. This is the flip side of “It’s my life,” and “You’re not the boss of me,” and other eloquent proclamations of your generation. When you turn 18, it’s on your dime. Don’t whine about it or you’ll sound like a baby boomer.
Rule #7. Before you were born your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way paying your bills, cleaning up your room and listening to you tell them how idealistic you are. And by the way, before you save the rain forest from the blood-sucking parasites of your parents’ generation try delousing the closet in your bedroom.
Rule #8. Life is not divided into semesters, and you don’t get summers off. Nor even Easter break. They expect you to show up every day. For eight hours. And you don’t get a new life every 10 weeks. It just goes on and on.
Rule #9. Television is not real life. Your life is not a sitcom. Your problems will not all be solved in 30 minutes, minus time for commercials. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop to go to jobs. Your friends will not be perky or as polite as Jennifer Aniston.
Rule #10. Be nice to nerds. You’ll probably end up working for them.
Rule #11. The answers are not in the back of the book. You’re going to have to work to figure stuff out for yourself. The answers you’ll be looking for won’t be clearly right or wrong, you’ll also need to determine that for yourself. Embrace uncertainty. Life is full of it.
Rule #12. Enjoy this while you can. Sure, parents are a pain, school’s a bother, and life is depressing. But someday you’ll realize how wonderful it was to be kid. Maybe you should start enjoying it now.
