​Path to Exam Success



Book description

The path to success begins with a discovery of what to do, how to do it and going ahead to do it. This is the path that guarantees success. You are not a failure until you have someone to blame! Most at times, people’s opinion which is a free comment by the way, tags you a failure. Failure is a relative term, has no substance but evident, erodes virtues, robs vision, break down and mystify your dreams. However, there is good news for you! You are to succeed and make impact where others fail. Yes!

No matter how well an institution loves you; your promotion is tied securely to writing an examination. Scholarship only covers your tuition; it does not exempt you from examination. Hence to succeed, examination is a prerequisite! You can succeed in that examination if only you give your failure point a hard knock... willing to give it all it takes or a trial where you have failed before. You just have to be strong enough to give it another chance- a fair deal! That examination or test will not break you the next time. This book is all you need to give that examinations a final knock and have your desired success at your fingertips.
