Being successful in college or university involves more than just "being smart" or even "doing the work." It's more than just a few classes - it's a lifestyle. You will need to work, eat, sleep, and socialize well in order to study well; and you'll have to study well in order to learn and do well in your courses.
This book provides a collection of tips and reminders for taking care of yourself and having a productive and happy time as you study. Whether you are an international student, an older non-traditional student, a student at a community college, or a "traditional" freshman at a four-year-college or university, there is a tip here to help you. Whether you apply a single tip, or whether you work through the list, you will be taking action to be a better student and to maximize the benefits of your overall college experience.
Tips are organized into these categories: Make an Impression, Understand, Be Organized, Respect the Rules, Support Your Classmates, Have a Goal, Take Care of Yourself, and Utilize Resources.
50 Ways to Be a Better Student is full of common sense - but the common sense of insiders: teachers who have "been there and done that" as students themselves and of people who have watched a wide range of students move through their courses and programs. For students, the tips will be a strategic asset. Teachers will find that making this information accessible to students will help to create self-directed learners and more harmonious classrooms.
