Bringing your ADHD to college can be a scary thing, but Making the Grade With ADD will ease your nerves. The book is designed to hold the interest of a reader with ADHD. Each chapter includes worksheets that walk you through important tasks, from sticking to a budget to selecting a major.

My favorite tool is the sleep-log worksheet: You keep track of when you took medication, went to bed, and woke up, and note how well-rested you felt each time until you perfect your sleep routine.

Making the Grade With ADD covers everything from financial aid to finding a job. Start reading it in high school and keep it with you through graduation.
