This book is not designed to insult your intelligence by providing you rudimentary advice on note-taking, making sure you get enough sleep or telling you to purchase a highlighter. It is about the intangibles and what goes on behind the curtain. Professors are people too and they can be influenced by what students do outside of what they write in a paper or fill in on an exam.
Sometimes hard work and sacrifice is not enough to earn that grade you seek and you need that extra push that can only come from the one assigning grades.

This book will teach you the mindset required to achieve ‘A’ grades as well as how to manipulate the many variables involved. As a professor, I deal with all types of students and the difference between college and university students who earn A’s and everyone else is considerable. I have watched ‘A’ students ply their trade and as a student I have plied them myself. This book will provide you with the additional tools you need to help you earn the A’s you desire and it addresses topics such as:

Why is classroom seating like playing a game of chess?

How missing the first day of class can set off a negative chain of events.

How greeting a professor at key times can influence your GPA.

What are the fastest ways to get a professor to give you a ringing endorsement (an A in the class).

How attendance (and how you handle it) influences the professor.

Easy things students never do but if they did could bump their grades from a C to a B or B to an A?

and much more.
