    Ok for this achievement all you have to do is earn all 36 stars from the trials. there are a total of six stars from each of main trials.
    The best advice i can give is to hack all vending machines, turrets, and most importantly the health machines. they will save you in a heartbeat. Do this before you adopt the little sister.
    Once everything is hacked, you can set traps around the body to be harvested. I like trap rivets and cyclone traps, when availble. If you can always have a cyclone trap on your lil sister, this will ensure no one gets close and breaks your adam chain. Another good one is your mini turret. I didnt even realize i had it till about half way thru. Its alternate ammo for hack tool, down on d-pad. Fire and hypnotize plasmids work well too.
    When using vending machines, alternate between health/eve and ammo. Also you need to keep your adam chain at 4x to get the most possible adam. Your chain increases the longer your lil sister is uninterupted.( not bein attacked by splicers )
    And finally you do not need an A rank to earn earn all the stars in a particular trial, I was getting all the stars for B rank on a few.
    Msg me if I left anything out.

    Good Luck

    I think you just have to SURVIVE the level to get the stars. The first time I played the 3rd trial on Persephone, I got a D rank (lol) but still got all 3 stars!

    So this achievement (earn all 36 stars) is much easier than the 'A' rank in all trials (Enemy of the Family).

    NafrayuNoxYes the cyclone traps work very well, although one should not set it right on the little sister, because the splicers attack her from the sides, so the trap on the sister won't trigger, so usually i set the traps where I expect the splicers to be standing when trying to get to her, and it works great. I usually set three of them at different sides of the sister, depends on the map. Great solution though PointySpred :D

    Mental Knight 5It's true, another wording for this achievement would be "Complete all 18 trials (bonus not included)." Good solution, all of the advice listed is valuable, but you only really need to worry about an unbroken ADAM chain if you are working on 'Enemy of the Family' or 'Get a Bigger Bucket.'
