Middle grades are ... the pivot point around which the system turns. Students ... are more likely to drop out if they don’t have the skills they need to succeed.

Here is a real system
that you can
tonight and start
. . . a system that will
you how to —
Anticipate what your teachers/professors will talk about in class the next day
Form a “mental outline” of that material — to help you follow the coming discussion
Understand what to capture in your notes
Learn how to turn your notes into an effective “study tool”
“Read” your textbook only once, but use it to create an effective “study tool” ... Use that study tool anticipate most test questions … Use those questions as “coat-hooks” to master the material
Use the study tools you’ve created to “practice taking the test” (while most of your classmates are still trying to read the textbook)
Review on a regular schedule to retain what you’ve learned
The system of learning that my new eBook will put in your hands is a tool -- and, like any tool, it's most use-ful when you actually use it. Let me draw an analogy:
So you pick up a shoe from the floor (must be your roommate's shoe -- you'd never leave your shoe on the floor), grab it by the toe, and start hammering that little nail in the middle of the picture hook with the heel of your shoe.
And it actually goes into the wall a little bit ... and you unconsciously smile and say "yes!" And so you keep hammering ... and hammering ... but the nail doesn't go in any further. So you slam the shoe harder onto the nail ... miss the nail and hit the wall (you can probably wash those scuff marks off later) ... maybe whack your finger .... and get totally frustrated.
Finally, you walk (grudgingly) down the stairs to the basement, get the stupid hammer, and knock the nail into the wall with two good smacks.
My study system... in this new eBook ... is a bit like that hammer. And I can promise you that, on most days, when you open your textbook, you'll tell yourself something like, "I don't have time to do the PQRWR2 thing tonight ... and besides, it's too much trouble. I'll just read the chapter this time and use the PQRWR2 study system next time." And so you'll just start to read the assignment.
Except that, after reading it, you may have some homework questions to answer. Whether or not you have a specific written assignment in the chapter, you will, sooner or later, have to learn the material. In either case, you'll find yourself going back into the text to find answers ... to memorize material ... to try and learn it.
On the other hand, if you had "gone down to the basement for the hammer" -- if you had applied this PQRWR2 system from the beginning -- then, in about the same time you spent reading and underlining anyway, you would have (a) pre-viewed the chapter, (b) created mental memory hooks, (c) created an effective study tool that you can use for the rest of the semester or school year, and probably even begun to (d) "practice taking the test."
Not to mention that, when it comes time to actually take the test (or mid-term or final) on this material, you'll spend less time (i.e., you'll have a far easier time) "mastering" the material than your classmates (who don't know the system) will as they try (tortuously) to merely "learn" it.
In short, if you'll regularly invest the time it takes to use the learning tools in my study system, they will give you back more time than you invest in them—with the bonus "dividends" of more free time, more peace of mind, and better mastery of the material.
These study skills /
learning skills are the right tool to help you move
“memorizing” to “mastering.”
(Why struggle to “learn”
material . . . when you can easily move to
it—probably in less time than you now spend trying to
So, which makes mores sense—to spend long, tedious hours plowing aimlessly through your assignments, hoping that enough of it will stick in memory long enough to get you a “C” . . . or spending the same time (maybe even less time) “decoding” the material so that you understand what your textbooks are trying to say to you (and what your teachers want you to say back to them on exams) in order to “master” the material?
By the way, the system in my new eBook also helps you remember things longer. So you’ll actually do less cramming the night before a test ... less panicking the week before your “final” … and have more “Oh, yea, I remember that!” moments when a teacher refers to something that you "learned" before (but most of your classmates have forgotten).
