“Every college student, or every parent of a college student, must buy this book!”
—Jeffrey J. Fox, author of How to Become CEO

From the Inside Flap

The only guide to getting ahead once you've gotten in--proven strategies for making the most of your college years, based on winning secrets from the country's most successful students
What does it take to be a standout student? How can you make the most of your college years--graduate with honors, choose exciting activities, build a head-turning resume, and gain access to the best post-college opportunities? Based on interviews with star students at universities nationwide, from Harvard to the University of Arizona, "How to Win at College presents seventy-five simple rules that will rocket you to the top of the class. These college-tested--and often surprising--strategies include:
- Don't do all your reading
- Drop classes every term
- Become a club president
- Care about your grades, Ignore your GPA
- Never pull an all-nighter
- Take three days to write a paper
- Always be working on a "grand project"
- Do one thing better than anyone else you know
Proving that success has little to do with being a genius workaholic, and everything to do with playing the game, "How to Win at College is the must-have guide for making the most of these four important years--and getting an edge on life after graduation.
