Customer Reviews

Nice tips, kind of repetitive

I found this book had some great tips and very well structured so one can put them in action with ease. For me, however, the tips and advice from the author were very obvious, I am not certain if it is just me or they are indeed ovbious. Reading it and puting it on the top of your mind does help a lot. Great book! A must read for every student striving for 4.0!

Great overview, not a specific "study skills" book

The author references two books in the beginning of this book. He contrasts his book with these two says the methods described in his are more realistic to achieve. I'm going to use this book as an outline but I'm going to read the other two books if I need more specific study skills and strategies.

Great Book

Great Advice despite being 10 years old now. Newport’s book is even more relavent today than it was when he wrote it. A must read for anyone who has difficulty with time management!
