Are you a student wondering what to do with your life? Are you unsure which college to attend or how to manage your college life? Can you get a good GPA? Can you cut it academically? Will you abandon your Christian values in college?

These are valid questions. And, you are not alone! If you want to succeed, and we are certain you do, then this is a must-have manual covering campus life for Christian students from the eyes of a professor.

Selected by The Daily Beast as one of the "Top 10 Hottest Classes in America," physics professor Michael J. Bozack, Ph.D. shares seven effective strategies for guaranteed academic achievement.

Learn from this popular professor the attitudes, principles, and skills you need to achieve success. These strategies will help you manage student life, succeed in college, and help you remain Christian through it all.

Learn answers to questions such as:
Why do students avoid asking for help from their professors?

What are some common rookie mistakes freshmen make in college?

What do you say to students who got A's in high school without studying, who feel they can get by in college the same way?

What are some of the social snares that pose issues for Christian students in college?

Why is it so important to pull a good GPA in your freshman year?

What is the biggest thing Christian students neglect in college?

About the Author

Michael J. Bozack received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. degree in applied physics from Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU). At OHSU, he worked for Dr. Lynwood W. Swanson (founder of FEI Corporation) and Dr. John S. Blakemore (of Solid State Physics and Semiconductor Statistics fame) on the surface physics associated with B- and As-emitting liquid metal ion sources.

Next, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Surface Science Center at the University of Pittsburgh, where he performed pioneering experiments with Professors J. T. Yates, Jr. and W. J. Choyke on Si and SiC surface chemistry, epitaxial growth, methods in semiconductor surface chemistry, and electron-stimulated desorption (ESD and ESDIAD)

of F+ from Si(100) surfaces.

Later, he moved to Intel Corporation as chief surface scientist during development of the 386-486 (pre-Pentium) microprocessor. During this period the Materials Technology Group at Intel experienced tremendous growth with the addition of nearly $20M of surface, thin film, and materials instrumentation to support VLSI technology throughout Intel.

Currently, Dr. Bozack is Professor of Physics at Auburn University and Director of the AU Surface Science Laboratory (AUSSL). His research interests include gas- and metal-surface reactions, semiconductor surfaces, thin films, ohmic and Schottky contact

development, semiconductor processing technology, wide bandgap electronics, liquid metal alloy wetting, and Pb-free solder technology, and tin whiskers. Current work focuses on the details of chemical reactions between liquid and solid surfaces. The

focus is to obtain a microscopic description of surface dynamic processes by exploring the kinetics of surface reactions and the nature of the surface chemical bond.

Michael has been featured on several radio stations and in publications including Phil Waldrep Ministries Living With Joy Radio which aired on over 450 stations nation wide.
