    This review is from: How to Become a Straight-A Student: The Unconventional Strategies Real College Students Use to Score High While Studying Less (Paperback)
    I am a current college student (biology pre-med) and I applied his concepts and methods and it resulted in me getting A’s on my first round of exams. But I started slacking off afterwards and ended up with lower grades on my next round of exams. So just remember to follow his methods diligently. I think what I learned the most from this book is the importance of routine and time management (big game changers).
