I was the class clown in high school who barely graduated and then spent a miserable year at community college where I failed multiple classes.
The Navy helped me get serious about life. But after getting out and deciding to give college another go, I still didn't have the skills I needed to succeed. I was also really intimidated about attending a large university. Fortunately, a professor that first semester back helped me get the skills I needed to do well and graduate at the top of my class.
I'm now in graduate school and just finished reading The Strategic Student. I learned a number of new and updated strategies I can start using now to make school easier and less stressful. Some of them obviously carry over into the real world as well.
In short, author David Cass gets it, and he has filled this book with a lot of practical ideas you'd never discover on your own.
If you decide you want to do well in college, get this book. You'll discover a blueprint to help you succeed without pulling all-night study sessions. Why anyone would go to college without reading it is beyond me.
Dave's personal experience as a student, teacher, mentor and leader of our troops is captured in this poignant roadmap. Think of this book as your civilian SOP for study habits. Follow it and succeed! Its that simple. If you make one investment in your future....make this book number one. Trust me, Dave can break down the complex challenges you face and provide a step by step process that allows any motivated soldier/sailor student to reach their highest potential.
