Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In high school, students have lots of safety nets. In college, they sink or swim. This completely revised guide to college success educates students in the basic college survival skills that professors don't teach, such as how to study, take tests, balance school and social life, and more. Filled with advice on how to hit the campus running, this fun-spirited crash course in the rules of college provides tools to equip students for a lifetime of learning. A thorough revision of the popular guide to all things college, with three completely new chapters on research papers, theories of learning, and Q&As. Includes helpful sidebars, such as sad-but-true student stories, study tips, and info for nontraditional students, as well as special coaching for struggling students. Previous edition has sold 40,000 copies.Reviews"Worth a look, if you're headed for college or getting ready to apply."-San Diego Union Tribune

Synopsis:

Targeting students who are making the transition to college, this helpful--and humorous--guide covers the practical, emotional, and academic aspects of the challenges that they will face. Now completely revised and expanded.
