Parents in Touch (via Amazon) -
This is such a common question posed to Parents in Touch and this is the perfect solution. David Lambourne is an experienced teacher with many years experience of prepring pupils for exams, so you know you can rely on the advice in this book. It is aimed at secondary school pupils and emphasises the importance of parental help and support. Topics covered include motivation, effective study, health, note-taking, essay writing, coursework, revision techniques and that all important day - the exam itself. Full of practical and easy to apply ideas, I recommend this book for sharing with your teenager for reassurance and support, and to give you confidence that you are doing your best to help. This is one in the Need-2-Know series - a very practical series, that gives just the right amount of information to cover the most common questions.
