An Insider's Guide to Secrets of the System
John Janovy Jr.
OUTWITTING COLLEGE PROFESSORS is the ultimate college success book. This valuable little volume tells everything you need to know, from how profs make out exams, how you should act if you encounter your prof in a bar, tips for maximizing grades on papers, to advice on how to handle your relationships with the most difficult profs (in a chapter named "Advanced Outwitting"!) For over four decades, college students have used these tricks on the author, and now he's passing along the ones that work, along with explanations of why they work. The 4th Edition contains a contributed chapter by Nicole Searcey, champion outwitter and Fulbright Scholar. If there is any single textbook any college student must have, it's OUTWITTING. This one makes the ideal gift for a graduating, college-bound, high school senior!
