How to Get an A in College

This book has some important tips on how to maximize college grades.
I don't agree with all of them; however, some notable suggestions are
presented by the author:

o study student reviews of teachers on "[..]"

Very often, students will have important insights about teaching methods,
testing and the award of grades.

o find out whether or not the teacher utilizes the text in class
(For some courses, the text is optional or hardly used.)

o form a study group for courses like higher math/science and delegate work

o organize your notes with multiple color flags, yellow high lighters etc

Over the years, I've taught courses in business and math. In this capacity,
it's important to integrate the lecture with the notes. In addition,
students who come to class should be rewarded. I've drawn the test material
from the class notes with some reference to the text. Students should get
partial credit for substantially correct answers. As a practical matter,
the bell curve grading scheme can be problematic. Some administrators
follow this scheme religiously while others are less concerned about the
overall award of A's, B's, C's etc.

Overall, the acquisition has many helpful hints which could be pivotal
in closely contested courses where the difference between an A or B
may hinge on enhanced study techniques. Worry about getting an "A" or
a "B" but be more concerned about how to apply your education
in an industrial or a career context. Remember, most of what you do in
college is preparation for a decades-long working career.
