#1 How to Study in College Book
77 Ninja Study Skills Tips and Career Strategies [Kindle Edition]
Although Fox, a "person young enough to have college in his rear-view mirror," has branched out into law and real estate, he did develop a study program for "at risk" students at the University of Texas and still runs series of lectures for prospective students. There's nothing new in his pushing "serious, steady effort" ("professors want some pain"), time management, and disciplined study strategies (limit TV, and no music while working, not ever), but he goes a bit further than most to counsel kids about getting to know campus services, finding mentors, and becoming involved in extracurricular activities. Salient points appear in boldface, and key ideas are listed at the close of each chapter, making skimming easy. The focus-on-studies-and-the-future approach will appeal to parents; kids will come away with a few helpful hints to get the job done.
