My 4th book is titled "Why Study Hard?". It is provides 12 reasons why students need to do well in school. I wrote it to motivate students to really do their best because there are many benefits to them, their families and their children later. I am confident that many students who read the book will feel empowered to give their best shot at their studies.
"Why Study Hard?" is the first of a series of 4 books I plan to write, all aimed at motivating students to do well. The second book ("Study Skills For Enhanced Academic Performance") talks about how students can receive good grades. It covers subjects such as goal-setting, study planning, preparing for classes, tips on note-taking, revision, assignments, preparation for exams, sitting for exams, time management, etc. This will be followed by a book which discusses the major distractions which students are faced with, and suggestions on how to deal with them. Some of the distractions are boy-girl relationships, sports, student politics, religious activities, alcohol and drugs, etc. The final book is to be titled "25 Benefits for Bookworms". It discusses the personal benefits students can realise by reading books.
"Why Study Hard?" is with the printers right now and is expected to be out in March 2009. The others will follow thereafter.
