I wrote this book to help students become successful in their chosen course of studies. Being an Automotive instructor for almost five years teaching in the public school system, and in the private sector I fine that students of all ages from 13 to 55 years old struggle the most with knowing how to

take notes how to study after a lesson and how to prep for a test. I hope that this book helps many who struggle with learning.

Introduction

Effort

The key to you for a successful class will depend in most part by how good you are in listening, questioning, note taking and studying and most important, test taking. My Objective is to give students these basic skills to help the dedicated student become successful in their learning experience.

People learn best when they are ready to learn! Are you ready?
As a student you will play the biggest part in your education. If you do your part and your Instructor does his part you will be successful. The instructor will give information in many ways; this is to make sure that all learners in the class can understand the main concepts and ideas needed by his students. He will ask questions to check you understanding and he will encourage your participation in the lesson. Your job as a Student is to listen to your Instructors ideas and information during his lesson. Discuss these ideas and share your own thinking and views with the class and your instructor.

It is vital that no matter what level of education you bring into the course, you should always keep an open mind and try to get something new out of the lesson. There will be times that the information your instructor is given will be very basic for those students with a lesser understanding of the subject. Try not to get frustrated, or bored because the lesson in your opinion is dragging on. Instead you should

raise your hand and tell the class some of your experiences in this area that will support what the instructor has just covered. Your instructor is looking for this type of interaction. “The more you put into your education the more you will get out of it”
