Red face Failed a Stage Check because of landing too fast.

I did a Stage check today so I could get signed off to solo. Everything was good, such as maneuvers, communications, etc., but I landed fast on all of my landings. I fly a Piper Warrior and was coming in around 10kts too fast, even with full flaps, power idle and even putting it into a slip. I also came in fast on my no flaps and 10* flap landings.

What can I do to keep my speed at 63kts for final?

I was also thinking of ordering a book called "Making Perfect Landings"...is this worth it or not at all?

thanks
