Students do months of research before choosing just the right college, but once theyre on campus, how many of them actually research the professors who are teaching their classes? To optimize your college education you need to find your schools best teachers but how?

What Every College Student Should Know is a guide to discovering the best teachers at your school and learning everything you can from them. Here, the unique writing combination of a professor and a student provides you with perspectives from both sides of the equation. You'll learn:

    • What questions to ask in selecting an instructor

    • How to evaluate professors based on the first class sessions

    • What to look for in a syllabus and grading policies

    • How to identify a professors teaching style and how to adapt to it

​Even the most outgoing students can expect only limited contact with their professors in the classroom, so the authors also provide tactics to take full advantage of meetings outside regular class time, such as:

    • Advice on how to review your exam or paper with your professor

    • Ways to build a relationship with a teacher and get invaluable feedback on your work

    • Tips on how to get the best recommendations from proffessors
