On Sunday there was a book signing at Barnes & Noble in San Bruno, California

It was so interesting to see who came up to the table to ask about the book and question me about their own issues regarding test taking.

Students:  a number of high school students were curious about the book. Their issues? Getting nervous during tests. Procrastination while they’re supposed to be studying. Losing confidence when they have a difficult question. The test prep books on the market don’t adequately handle these issues. Yet, when mastered as effective study skills they can make the difference between a high and low test score.

Next: parents.  Their issues?  How to support their kids in learning and practicing effective study skills. They were happy to see a chapter especially for parents.

Then came adults taking professional licensing exams. Their concerns?  How can they make sure they pass?  These exams are very important to their income and being able to support their families. One of them said he couldn’t find a test prep book that gave him the effective study skills he needed but never got in school.

I’m glad that so many different people are finding the book helpful.

I’d like to hear your issues with tests.  Send them in!
