Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An updated, expanded edition of the popular guide written by two college professors that gives students a crash course in college survival 101.

In a sink-or-swim environment, this handbook is a lifeline, helping students navigate the uncharted waters of university life. Now extensively revised, College Rules! shares essential advice and strategies that aren’t taught in lectures or seminars. Students learn how to study effectively, handle stress, prepare for tests, stay motivated, balance academics and a social life, and avoid common rookie mistakes. Offering much more than study tips, this go-to guide provides students with the tools they need to thrive, both in their classes and in the campus community.
