about this book

“College is hard, but the rules for college success are simple. The trick is, even though they are simple in theory, they are often very difficult in practice. But here’s my college professor’s guarantee: If you consistently and conscientiously follow these rules, you will ace your courses, impress your friends and family, and have prospective employers or graduate schools begging you to walk through their doors.” So begins Philip Mitchell Freeman’s Lecture Notes, a practical primer from a veteran college professor and respected historian for every incoming college student on how to successfully transition from high school to the halls of academe.

Professor Freeman outlines the benefits for students in developing appropriate mentoring relationships with teachers, explains how they may foster these crucial relationships and get the best from their professors, and demystifies faculty hierarchy by revealing who makes a good choice, who is a waste of time, and why. In addition, straightforward, no-nonsense study strategies, including how to read a book, when to start a paper, and why it is smart for students to show up for class round out this gem of a book.
