Editorial Reviews

Review

"How to Succeed in College is the best book I have ever read about the student experience and how to navigate academic life in any college or university. Jon B. Gould is a professor who cares deeply about student success, understands the student/teacher relationship, and has a terrific sense of humor. If we could somehow get every high school senior and college freshman, guidance counselor, and parent in the country to read this book, our college students would make the most out of their education, one of the most important investments they will ever make." -Susan Herbst, president, University of Connecticut"

A quick read with alot of common sense and some insider information I did not know. I read this along with some similar titles on my Kindle and gained insight at least worth the price of the book.

I am a professor and found JG's message to new college students so useful, it was worth buying a copy for each first year major.

What sound, practical advice! I wish I had this book when I was a freshman. It's no wonder the college drop out rate is as high as it is. With advisors cramming scheduling sheets and majors down your throat, their lurking mantra of "if you don't pick something now, and take at least 16-18 credits, you won't graduate in 4.5 years", plus parental pressures of some parents with their "you know, honey, they don't call them starving artists for nothing" it's amazing we have as many college grads as we do. Take your first year and figure it out - such a sound recommendation. Sure beats changing your major every semester. Also, how can I be encouraging when my freshman can't see the value of why Western Civ, calculus, PE, or some other 'core classes' are really necessary? I can't tell him that I use those skills on the daily . . .
