During his time as a professor, the author has learned that although most university students are smart and capable, many of them go about their educations in a fashion that does not lead to success. This is because knowing what it takes to do well in college is never learned in high school, and really, it is never explicitly taught in college either. There are simple formulas for doing well in school and this book was written to give readers some of the keys to academic excellence. "So, You Are Going to College?!" (Second Edition) is a fun read, as the author's own research points to the notion that the more you like a class the more you: learn, are motivated to learn, are satisfied with your communication with your teacher, and participate in class. By reading this book, you will learn some of the expectations professors have of their students and you will learn some of the behaviors you need to perform if you want to do well in college.

This enjoyable, yet brief and to the point, book includes:

  • A look at some of the myths students have about professors and about college in general.
  • Discussion on the number one rule for success in life, being an adult.
  • Some of the expectations professors have for their communication with students.
  • How to listen effectively in class, a guide to help students learn more and daydream less.
  • The formulas for doing well on exams and helping students become aware of their goals in college.
