Summary

To succeed in school, motivation and intelligence are not enough - you need to know how to manage time effectively and use it efficiently.

After following these suggestions for just a few weeks, you'll be amazed at how effectively you're managing your study time, how much your grade have improved, how much time you have left for out-of-school activities, and how much easier - and more enjoyable - your schoolwork has become.
