Groundbreaking advice on how to excel in college from a top student and former valedictorian

Stefanie Weisman was a top student all her life. But it was not because she was a "natural" or smarter than her classmates—in fact, she succeeded as a student in spite of an undiagnosed learning disability. Instead, what she gradually realized was that her classmates were making mistakes, and lots of them.

The Secrets of Top Students is a conversational guide for students on how to maximize their learning and get the grades they want. It is full of innovative tips from Stefanie and 20 other top students that not only work but have received little or no attention in competing books. The Secrets of Top Students will appeal to students of all levels, providing them with the advice they need from a voice they can trust.

Great ideas, good points, sound advice, and helpful tips. The author had high-school and college/university students in mind, but really, it's for everyone.
