Overview

Outwitting College Professors is the ultimate college success book. This valuable little volume tells everything you need to know, from how profs make out exams, to how you should act if you encounter your prof in a bar, tips for maximizing grades on papers, advice on handling your relationships with the most difficult profs (in a chapter named “Advanced Outwitting”!), and ways to get great letters of recommendation. For over four decades, college students have used these tricks on the author, and now he’s passing along the ones that work, along with explanations of why they work. If there is any single textbook any college student must have, it’s Outwitting. You're paying massive amounts of money to attend college. This $3.99 will multiply the value of that investment many times over.
Outwitting College Professors is the perfect gift for a graduating, college-bound, high school senior! And, if you're a college prof, and 5% of your students take Outwitting's advice to heart, your classroom experiences will be significantly more rewarding than they are at present.
