"This book is clearly written, well organized, and based on sound cognitive research. It does a fine job of presenting quality study skills techniques, together with many examples and instructional aids....The book also provides a compelling rationale for teachers to invest ample time and effort in a sound, empirically supported method for teaching study skills techniques to students with LD."
