Titles in the "Painless Series" help students confront classroom subjects that they might often prefer to avoid. These books truly take the pain out of schoolwork, guiding boys and girls slowly and clearly, step-by-step, often adding a few touches of fun and humour, and demonstrating that learning can actually be fun. The books are embellished with often-humorous line illustrations and also feature sidebars with helpful learning tips and fun-to-solve Brain Tickler quizzes with answers. Most kids hate to study, and homework is always a chore - but this book teaches them how to transform drudgery into interesting and productive projects. The author offers ideas for group learning projects, creating a stimulating study environment, and knowing how to read different kinds of books, from mathematics to literature. He also advises on organising ideas for writing assignments, and seeking help for difficult subjects.
