There is an art to studying. Anyone one can "study," but few truly learn the art. Drew Case's insightful new guide to academic achievement, The Keys to Success, provides the tools you need for a lifetime of accomplishment. The author's fifteen years of classroom instruction have helped shape this handbook into a fun and easy-to-read compilation that teaches the skills required for successful learning, studying, and test taking. Over the past decade and a half, the strategies laid out in The Keys to Success have been shown to help all types of students achieve their maximum potential time and time again. The lessons learned, however, don't simply apply to college students. Instead, anyone wishing to acquire and apply new skills can benefit from Case's expertise. Originally conceived as a short addendum to the syllabi in his college science and nursing classes, Case quickly realized just how much most students needed a no-nonsense guide to academic achievement. As a result, he modified his original materials that resulted in the comprehensive book that is The Keys to Success. So whether one is a K-12 or college student, acquiring new job skills, or even a member of the military, the potential knowledge this educative guide offers is endless. Case travels around the state presenting to various K-12 schools and colleges. Case is available for speaking and presentations. Please contact him at [email protected] for more information.

This book provides all that and more!!! I would highly recommend this to anybody embarking on furthering their educational goals. - College Staff I think the book is great! I love the common sense approach in a day when "common sense" is rare. Your layout is clean and fresh. There is a nice flow. I found THE KEYS TO SUCCESS to be caring, upfront and a GPS to success. - College Bookstore Manager Coming back to school after many years of raising a family and having a career I felt so rusty and lost. This book literally saved my grade. If you have concerns about how to study and do well in college, this book is a MUST! Thanks Mr. Case - Angie, College Student I had Mr. Case for my pharmacology class and he gave us a copy of the unprinted book to see if we liked it. LOVED IT!!!!
