What Every College Student Should Know is a guide to discovering the best teachers at your school and learning everything you can from them. Here, the unique writing combination of a professor and a student provides you with perspectives from both sides of the equation. You’ll learn:
What questions to ask in selecting an instructor How to evaluate professors based on the first class sessions What to look for in a syllabus and grading policies How to identify a professor’s teaching style and how to adapt to it Even the most outgoing students can expect only limited contact with their professors in the classroom, so the authors also provide tactics to take full advantage of meetings outside regular class time, such as:
Advice on how to review your exam or paper with your professor Ways to build a relationship with a teacher and get invaluable feedback on your work Tips on how to get the best recommendations from professors.

Those of us in college found out very quickly how difficult it can be to naviagte our ways through the academic labyrinth of educational red-tape. The time it takes us to regroup and find out the most effective way to get the most of our time at school is even more costly--for those who can even figure out the ropes in time. Fortunately, Dr. Lepore and Sarah-Jane Leslie have divulged all of this coveted information in their book, packaged in a fun and easy-to-read format. Having the dual perspectives of an esteemed University Professor and a successful college student makes this a rarity amongst College guide books, and adds perspective and credibility to the advice given. Included are tips on finding the best classes and the best instructors, and getting the best recommendations for future endeavors. A must-have for anyone starting college, and a great read for those who have already started.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
