Students face plenty of roadblocks while trying to cope with studies. They often cram up before exams or put in a lot of hard work but their scores don’t always reflect that. What they might lack is a proper guideline. They might have a flawed approach towards their studies and that needs a change. This book is the perfect go-to source for all students.

The book is loaded with suggestions for students who are looking to score better. I thought all the points made were quite relevant and very conc

~Copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review~

Anyone Can Get An A+: How To Beat Procrastination, Reduce Stress and Improve Your Grades is a self-help book aimed at college students. Mukherjee uses her own experience alongside research to create a series of tips which one can use to improve their grades and study skills.

As someone who’s currently in the middle of her A-levels, this was extremely helpful in reminding me to rethink my revision strategy. In this book, there’s various way

I really enjoyed this book and wish I had it when I was a student. It teaches you techniques for how to do well in school, college, or a graduate program while still having a life outside of studying. I like how the author coins her own unique terms and metaphors to make you excited for learning. For example, she calls accessible learning topics "low-hanging fruit" and compares improvement in a subject to jumping levels in a video game. Clearly, learning can be fun according to this book, rather ...more

A Good Common Sense Guide

It has been a while since I studied or took an exam and after reading this book, I realise how pathetic my revision plan was. How I wish I had this book to help me organise myself and I think that although I may not have achieved an A+, I would definitely have passed a few more exams. I would like to think that everyone could get an A+ but think it is unlikely.

Geetanjali Mukherjee, the author, has produced a practical and enlightening guide that will help all. Each chap

This book aims to help you to improve your grades by combating procrastination and with other study tips. As someone who describes herself as a serial procrastinator in all aspects, I could not wait to pick up this book and read some of the tips. 

The book is mostly aimed at students and people who are studying, and offers numerous tips and advice to reducing stress relating to school, using the author's own personal experiences. 

I wish I had this book when I was studying. There are so many usefu

Especially aimed at college students, Anyone Can Get An A+, draws on both research studies and the author's personal experience. Included are over thirty tips to improve one's grades and study skills. The author, Geetanjali Mukherjee, has chronicled her own past successes and failures, analyzed techniques that worked, and supported these strategies with research such as that of Carol Dweck and Charles Duhigg. Geetanjali has earned a bachelor's degree in English, attended law school, earned a mas ...more

A detailed, structured guide to better time and learning management.

Geetanjali Mukherjee provides copious useful information and instruction in her guide to improving exam grades. Building upon her personal experience in exams based curricula, she crafts a helpful study guide for students of all levels of capability. She writes to the doubts and confusion students may go through.

I couldn't escape a feeling that much of what Ms. Mukherjee writes is - common sense. Perhaps this has something to

The first half of Anyone Can Get An A+ explains the dynamics of learning by splitting it into two categories: growth mindset, believing that you can improve, and fixed mindset believing that you are stuck with what you have.

In thirty-nine steps, Anyone Can Get An A+: How to Beat Procrastination, Reduce Stress and Improve Your Grades sets down a UNIQUE and strong foundation for your child to change from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset by developing skills and adapting positive abilities for l

I read this book recently and think it totally captures so many of the struggles I faced in college and high school. I so wish I could have read this earlier, would have totally helped with my fear of math and science in school. I recommend for anyone struggling with difficult subjects, wanting to improve their grades, or just want to learn some tips to do better in college or school. I will definitely be using the tips here to study for the GMAT!

This is a solid guide that will teach any student to get better grades. I like the author's advice that hard work trumps intelligence. She encourages students to systematically work through difficult problems so that they can master even their weakest subjects. This book can be used as a reference throughout the student's college career. Some of these tips can benefit anyone even those who have begun careers.

Apart from these secondary or supporting but essential lifestyle habits, the author also discusses various ways you can organize your time and follow a well designed plan. From how to avoid procrastination, to finding out what is hurting them most, the author answers most of the students’ questions and guides them with information to tackle these problems. ~ http://bookreviews.infoversant.com/an...

- She regularly refers to Cal Newport, which made it difficult not to compare with this one. The only study/college book I have ever put into practice is "How to Be a Straight A Student". Definitely recommend that one over this.

- I felt I've already read her tips on multiple articles, podcasts, videos, and tumblr posts. There was nothing particularly special about it.

- This is great for someone who has absolutely no organizational system, constantly pulls all-nighters, and has little awareness o

Geetanjali Mukherjee's 'Anyone Can Get An A+…', is based on her personal experience and also draws on well-explained research studies with practical tips to improve one's grades and study skills. A well-written book, easy to read and well-formatted, it is aimed at college students to improve their academic scores. It also explains the advantages of adequate rest, of avoiding multi tasking, and for keeping lists (to keep you from listing). What I would now like to see is the same matter given in ...more
