‘Secrets’ are out: Must-have book has tips for students

We wish we had Stefanie Weisman’s new book, “The Secrets of Top Students: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Acing High School and College,” when we were in school, but our loss is your child’s gain as this book goes beyond advising how to test better; it’s loaded with strategies on how to get the most out of school in a healthy, well-rounded way that will continue to serve your scholar well throughout their life.

Weisman’s winning writing style is relaxed and often humorous as she conveys wisdom she’s gained in the course of garnering numerous academic accolades. But she doesn’t rely on only conveying her experiences: she has surveyed 45 other outstanding students and incorporates research gleaned from them and other sources on how to achieve success in science, technology, engineering, and math courses; the pitfalls of using stimulants; and more.

“The Secrets of Top Students: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Acing High School and College” by Stefanie Weisman, $14.99, www.amazon.com.
