AN ESTIMATED TWO PERCENT OF COLLEGE FRESHMAN WILL QUIT WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK!! AND THE NUMBER WILL INCREASE AS THE SEMESTER PROGRESSESWITH THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS YOURE GOING TO SPEND FOR COLLEGE THIS YEAR, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO PASS ON THIS BOOKMoreAN ESTIMATED TWO PERCENT OF COLLEGE FRESHMAN WILL QUIT WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK!! AND THE NUMBER WILL INCREASE AS THE SEMESTER PROGRESSESWITH THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS YOURE GOING TO SPEND FOR COLLEGE THIS YEAR, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO PASS ON THIS BOOK FOR UNDER A DOLLAR!Former University of Arizona Academic Specialist, David doc Robertson, wants you to imagine that your son or daughter has left for college at an out-of-state university and after three or four weeks, suddenly wants to come home. This follows the orientation trip, the dorm deposit, out of state tuition fees, meal fees, books, and all of the purchases for his or her comfort.Robertson witnessed this scenario, costing tens of thousands of dollars, on several occasions when he counseled students. His handbook, The Elements of College Success, is a thorough survival guide to help make it through the maze of dead ends and trap doors that can frustrate even the best students and possibly save those thousands by avoiding the above scenario.This book does not overwhelm the reader with text-book length chapters that can cause added stress. Robertson focuses on the things that matter, such as time management and how it is the Key Element to college success. He also discusses accurate note taking skills, how to prepare for exams, the benefits of living in residence halls, the difficulties of coping with catastrophes, and other topics of concern for students and parents.The former Academic Specialist counseled students at the University of Arizona until budget cuts closed his departmen. He successfully worked with students having trouble making the transition from high school to college in addition to those caught in the clutches of academic probation.Robertson says that at first glance someone may dismiss The Elements of College Success because of its brevity, but its points are well documented and address pertinent issues without taxing the reader. Its philosophy helped many students through college.Straight talk for students, but parents should read it too. In its short space, this book answers several questions that college students have been asking for decades. How do I utilize my time or study for an exam? How can I think like the professor- manage stress, or deal with unfamiliar surroundings? I explain the benefits of treating college like a job.For most students, the advice in this book can drastically raise a GPA and without any pain. It can also save thousands of dollars for under a buck! The same advice I gave to the students listed below is now available in my book.Testimonials:From University StudentsMr. Robertson made it a very pleasant and calming experience when talking about my career goal, which I have never had with another faculty member in a school.T.
