“This is a practical and motivating guide for both students and their parents to a vital understanding of the keys to succeeding in school, the importance of investigating potential career interests, and the need to take an active role in preparing for the years ahead. Each chapter is standalone and can be referenced in any order, with the Student’s Success Roadmap providing informative and revelatory exercises, which correspond to each section and will open readers’ minds to new opportunities and possibilities. Along the way, practical devices like the Seven Learning Secrets and comprehensive introductions to the challenges, opportunities, and credentials associated with various career tracks are presented in a candid and accessible fashion. Beyond the pages of The Student’s Advantage, additional resources are available to readers online at www.themotivators.net, and a supplemental DVD.
The Student's Advantage is a must for high school learners, college students, and in fact anyone embarking upon study. In plain language, with many true-life examples and quotes, readers are encouraged to define their goals, both in study and life. With tasks to motivate, and questions to inspire, the student is able to understand how to study; how to ask questions; how to use their brains; and how to put this knowledge to good use. Author Wyne Ince asks readers to define their concept of success and wealth, both personal and material, as a means of defining their path. Investing in education means investing in oneself. The readers learn just how important skills are in life, and how achieving them immediately puts one on a higher level, opening doors to a better standard of living. The book is an invaluable guide to creating a life road map for success, and very importantly, keeping motivation and personal drive running high and sticking to the goal. There is an excellent non-fiction reading list, as well as a list of appropriate fiction books and movies to appeal to the young student. Also included are useful links to a variety of career options. I encourage parents to get hold of a copy of this valuable and inspiring book now. Highly recommended.
