How To Do College Right

leave a comment »



We interrupt this regularly-scheduled zombie blog for some breaking news!  Stop the presses (except for the ones  printing my books) – the good folks at Owl’s Milk Press have just announced that my new college prep book will be FREE FREE FREE, FOR FREE DAYS ONLY (please note intentional error).  So be sure to download copies for the whole family!!!


The secrets of college success have been passed down from professor to professor for many centuries. Now, for the first time, these secrets are revealed.

 How to Do College Right is a guidebook, providing essential insights on how to navigate the foreign land of college. Without a guidebook, a traveler might wander around for a long time, missing out on some important landmarks, or wasting money by focusing on the wrong things. A student can just as easily wander through a couple years of college without accomplishing much. And that can prove costly.

Other than the purchase of a home, a college education is the biggest expense that most American families have. With tuition at some colleges approaching $50,000 per year, a four-year education can cost $200,000. Most people don’t think twice about consulting a realtor or a lending consultant before buying a house. They want to be sure that their investment is sound. But those same people will shell out a great deal of money for college tuition without making sure it’s well spent.

 How to Do College Right can help you make the most of your college experience by laying bare some of the expectations that guide professors in educating and evaluating students. College is hard; it’s meant to be. And it’s easy to screw up. I’m a professor. I know what it takes to succeed in college, to make the most of it, and to graduate fully prepared to take the next steps in life.

And I’ve seen too many students who don’t make it, students who have the ability to succeed but fail anyway, or otherwise waste their time. College is a program of expectations, and you would be wise to learn the rules that underlie those expectations. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, or if you’re headed to the Ivy League or to the local community college. This is an important stage of your life, and you have to treat it as such.

The secrets revealed in this book can help you make the most of your college experience.
