“Make the Grade" has everything you need to help succeed in school. It starts off by telling you to make a goal that you want to achieve before the end of the school year. Throughout the book, there are charts to help provide examples of what could help you. They make one to show you how to plan out your schedule for the week so you will not be stuck with no time to have fun. There are checklists that can be used in the book for things such as getting ready to study or getting ready to take a test. If you are the type of person to always end up on a teachers bad side, there is even help for that. The book describes 5 different types of teachers with their dislikes and how to get on their good side. "Make the Grade" contains almost everything you need to help start the school year off right.
"Make the Grade" was a very useful book. I believe I got the book a week before school started. It is more helpful to get the book at least 1 month in advance to help prepare yourself. I used a lot of techniques throughout the book to achieve success throughout the school year. My favorite part of the book were pages 54-57. I really enjoyed that part the most because it told me what to expect from teachers and how to handle them without being disrespectful. I would recommend this book to a student who seems to almost never be prepared and is struggling more than others. It may not be the most exciting book but it will help you out a lot.
