Exam Attack is a beautifully simple, straightforward but expert guide to beating exam stress, so that students of all abilities are geared up mentally and physically and can hit their exams with the right amount of adrenalin, enabling super-performance instead of panic or negative stress.
It’s an ebook only – too short to be a physical book! You can read it on any device: computer, tablet, iPad, phone, e-reader.
The School Library Association published a very positive review – here – and, because I love the SLA and always have, I am offering their members a 25% discount on the school licence. (The review was written way before I offered the discount and was entirely independently written! No incentives, I promise. And this discount is not because of the review but because of the wondrousness of school librarians.)
School librarians are the lynchpin of student wellbeing, bridging academic learning with the mental resilience and preparation that we all need to push through the challenges of life, whether those challenges are work-related or social, emotional or physical. Books change lives and school librarians open up the world of books.
I hope this purchase doesn’t have to come from library budgets, though! It should be a joint effort from the whole school. Exams may not be the ultimate goal of education but they are important measuring sticks, whether we like it or not (and I don’t), and the whole school should want each student to achieve their best.
[EDITED TO ADD: This book is no longer available to purchase. In 2020 it will be published in physical form and a much longer version, by Hachette Children’s Books.]
