HOME ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

The four major factors in students leaving college early are: 1) poor preparation for college-level work, 2) money, 3) isolation, 4) lack of skills in independent living.

“89 Essential Tips” addresses all four issues as well as safety and professional behavior. The book is inexpensive and simply written, so students are more likely to read it. And since book is small and light-weight, students can hold on to it.

In the large introductory course I teach, students often struggle due to poor study habits and a lack of understanding of the amount of time, effort, and ownership required to succeed. When students follow “how to study” guidelines presented in this book, their grades increased 11-26%.
