Success at College: What They Haven’t Told You takes tertiary study skills and success at college books to a completely new level.

This book is applicable to all college students. While some students will assume they have already developed the requisite skills to succeed at college these students may be in for a surprise.

The recommendations in the first two parts of the book are based on scientific discoveries – from every psychology and scientific report that related to success at university – published between 2000 and 2010. This research identified 1500 discoveries, many of which diverged from the common practices and assumptions of students and employees. A subset of these discoveries is included in this book.

The third part of this book focuses on writing style – perhaps the most important, and most underestimated, skill at college – and demonstrates how students can write more persuasively, professionally, concisely, precisely and fluently.
