Susan Quiroz learned the first semester of college that studying the night before a test  will lead to academic disaster.  After that fateful semester, she began to apply study skills that carried her successfully through college and graduate school. She realized the immense value in instructing children in those study skills as well as teaching them to type on a keyboard, quickly and accurately. During ten years of watching some homeschool students fail to thrive due to poor study habits and lack of organizational skills, she decided to put together this one-year high school course to arm students with essential study and keyboarding skills.
