Every student--adult or young--is expected to excel academically, which is one of the primary purposes of the overall education programs. Students who have failed or performed poorly at one time or the other usually lamented over their condition. In the process, so many of them attributed their failures or poor performances to many factors such as lack of financial support, genetic inheritance, parental educational background, and many other factors. On the contrary, students' motive toward their academic performance is fundamental--their attitude and mindset toward success.
Like every other endeavor, education requires discipline, goal setting, a determination to succeed, and, most importantly, a positive attitude. Wealth does not buy real knowledge; it only optimizes knowledge acquisition. That is what I had in mind when I divided this book into two sections. Section 1 discusses poor students' motives (the problems), while section 2 discusses positive academic attitudes that will lead to success (the solutions). This book is written solely on personal experiences with quotations to illustrate and expose the readers to intellectual realities.
