Overview

Cal Newport wants you to study smarter, not harder. How to Become a Straight-A Student is the second book he's written, and it focuses on how students can ace college using tried and tested study skills. His fourth and fifth books, for example, now deal with how to find and do great work in much later stages of your career. If you're in college and in need of a methodical blueprint for your studies, then this book is for you.

These lessons are aimed at those still in college, but they provide a good system for learning in general. Thanks to these tips from former students wanting to share their wisdom, you can boost your grades without sacrificing your personal life.
