One of the only college guide books written by a real expert--a student Bookstores are filled with shelves and shelves of books telling students how to get A's, how to manage their time more effectively, how to succeed socially, and how to get along with their roommates. Few, however, combine all these elements into a single, handy volume, and almost none are written by students themselves. Unique in its approach, The Complete Guide to College Success adopts a conversational style that engages the student in dialogue with its question and answer format, all the while providing useful, hands-on suggestions that translate into a positive college experience. Divided into three sections, The Complete Guide tackles Personal Development, Social and Interpersonal Excellence, and Academic Success. Each section is filled with self- improvement tips and strategies to make the college experience in its entirety a rewarding one. Descriptive and prescriptive in nature, the guide both informs readers and advises them: Do you have trouble taking tests? Here are some easy, and extremely effective, ways to enhance your memory and ace your exams. Are you always at a loss for time?The book provides straight-forward and proven strategies for time management. Nervous about meeting new people? Richard Newman has just the advice to put you at ease and to show you how to engage others. Concerned about dating, relationships, and sex issues in college?This book presents perspectives from students all over America. Newman also serves up an in-the-trenches look at college life with his Student Views, which introduce most chapters. Student Views are a collection of quotes gathered from college students around the country, who give their take on the issue that the chapter discusses. While most college guides are written by professionals in the fields of psychology or health, The Complete Guide to College Success is one of the only books written by a real expert--a student himself. Newman knows the reality of contemporary college life and here presents a wide range of college issues. Informal, candid, and easy-to-read, The Complete Guide to College Success is a book no college student should be without.
