In August 2015 I published Maximum Education – The Ultimate Guide to Optimal Academics. Somewhat to my surprise, the book became a #1 best seller on Amazon in the Education category and continues to sell every day. Thank you!
This book is essentially a guide on how to “do school” and how to study. The book was born from years of working with students in a variety of subjects and seeing the recurring pattern that some / part / all of the reason that they were struggling in Math or Science or whatever was that they were unorganized and they did not have a plan.
So I started to to make handouts and exercises for my students to help them organize, and to help them use their time better and to help them plan better… and you know what.. it worked! I took the handouts and compiled a workbook that I copied on the trusty mAke the grAde office copy machine. Finally, a parent of a student suggested that I make this into a book… and so Maximum Education – The Ultimate Guide to Optimal Academics was born.
Summarily the book covers 3 main topics:
A daily action plan
There are also several sections with suggestions for many other academic needs such as writing term papers, studying for standard tests like the SAT and ACT exams, writing college application essays, preparing for midterms and finals, etc etc…
So here are the updates: Recently I was interviewed by a national radio syndicate about the book which is available here, and Maximum Education – The Ultimate Guide to Optimal Academics is now being converted into a video class that anyone can access and follow at their own pace. The course should be available by August 15th.
At this point I am looking for suggestions. If you have the book and you have suggestions…
What should be included in the video?
What should be emphasized?
What helped you the most?
What was the least helpful?
What you be willing to provide a video testimonial?
Thank you for you past and present and continued support.
