Posted by Andrew Jungclaus on 6/13/13 2:18 PM

It’s official – summer is here for (almost) everyone.  And without the normal school deadlines on your back or the usual cast of teachers to please, summer can be the perfect time to sharpen the study skills that you just seem to have missed during the year before.
