Exceptional InsightsReview by The Learning Doctor
I have a combined 33 years in education both in classroom as well as a secondary principal. Mr. Paul has compiled an exceptional text with relevant insights for students across the secondary and post secondary spectrum. Readable, practical and easily applicable; this book can bring study skills at the hands of students in an era when teachers assume students have acquired these skills from prior teachers or courses.
