Back to school: greatest hits edition

 

Here’s a collection of past posts and resources to consider as students head back to school.

How to achieve your goals in school this year.

My favorite study skills book is Cal Newport’s How to Become a Straight-A Student: The Unconventional Strategies Real College Students Use to Score High While Studying Less. Don’t let the “college students” reference in the title throw you off, as most of it applies to high school students, too. Includes great advice about how to take notes, how to study, how to take a test, etc.

My book, If the U Fits: Expert Advice on Finding the Right College and Getting Accepted, explains every step of the college admissions process, from classes and testing to applications, essays, and interviews.

For parents:

The Challenge Success folks share their Top Ten Back-to-School Tips to Help your Child Thrive in School This Year.

For college students:

past post with resources and advice to help you start college strong and happy.


 ConsumerAffairs  created a guide to help students interested in cosmetology explore their post-secondary options. The guide sorts schools by type, and allows students to compare the features that matter most to them like pricing, accreditation and schedule. It also includes reviews from other students and alumni.
Here is the direct url to the guide: https://www.consumeraffairs.com/education/beauty-schools
Also, here are a couple of examples of how other schools are using the resource:
