Students and their families do months of research before choosing just the right college, but once they're on campus, how many students research the professors who are teaching their classes? To optimize your college education you need to find your school's best teachers, but how?
What Every College Student Should Know is a comprehensive guide to discovering the best teachers at your school and learning everything you can from them. Throughout the book, case studies are provided to give you vivid, real-life examples of how to put these ideas into practice. 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 resources to check and 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 -- The importance of instructor feedback and accessibility
Ernie Lepore and Sarah-Jane Leslie reveal strategies to maximize your classroom experience, such as: -- How to identify a professor's teaching style and expectations and how to adapt to them -- Ways to get a teacher to notice you and take an interest in your learning experience

What Every College Student Should HAVE Jun 20, 2002
Never in my 24 years as a University-level advisor have I seen an advice book that truly gives students an inside look on the world of higher education. It's all here: how to get the best classes, the best recommendations...in short, the best education. And done in a fun and accessible format! When college students find themselves in new and unidentifiable territory where the stakes riding on their academic decisions are tremendous, this guide will be their compass. The saavy advice and charming creativity of Ms. Leslie and her co-author are not to be missed. A+!
Truly first rate! Apr 26, 2002
This is really a wonderful work. One of the authors is a university professor; the other is an undergraduate: this in itself is an inspired idea. But what really makes the book stand out is the way that they have managed to translate their combined wisdom into genuinely useful practical advice. If you are looking for a gift for someone college-bound, look no further...
What Every College Student Should Read Apr 24, 2002
Dr. Lepore and Ms. Leslie have written a memorable compilation of useful advice that every student should be well acquainted with before entering the university environment. In short, this book, "What Every Student...", is an extremely well-written and invaluable work that will no doubt become a staple of every college student's education. I highly recommnend it!
