Every college and high school student has been given the same formula for academic success for the past 50 years: For every hour of class taken, you must study for two hours in order to make an A in that class. Do your homework. Come to class on-time. Take lots of notes and sit in the front of the class. How about them apples? This "one size fits all" rule is simply not efficient and doesn't deal with the complexities of college life, the personality of the professors, the fact that many classes are graded on a curve, etc. Finally, one student has stepped up to the plate for the first time in order to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how students earn and maintain high g.p.a.s, get recommendations, land internships, win scholarships, and still manage to have fun while in college. Author F.A. Stewart, who is currently a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering, says, "I wrote this book because I have seen too many students who did well in high school, and even scored high on their ACT/SAT tests, fail to produce the same results during their freshman year of college. I have tutored college freshman and mentored high-school students, but I still found it hard to translate how to be successful in college through those types of mediums. So that's why I wrote this book. It's for them. I personally feel like a burden has been released from my shoulders because, believe you me, I packed it all in when it came to writing this book." Who should read this book, you ask? Elementary school, high-school, community college, college, and graduate school students. This book was written with the intention of becoming the ultimate reference manual for academic success in college and therefore should be given to every high school and college student, but especially high school juniors, college freshman, and 1st-time college transfer students. Topics such as maximizing the amount of free financial aid, correlating your chosen major with the corresponding entry-level salaries, creating a 4-year plan of study, making a 4.0 during the first semester of college, and successfully applying for and winning scholarships are detailed in a step-by-step, easy to read format. Mr. Stewart and his colleagues have applied these strategies and can attest that they work. It's not just about working hard, it's about working smart. Tuition costs of colleges and universities are sky-high, disproportionately so, in comparison to food and the cost of living. Why struggle to pay for college, when you can apply these strategies and possibly have your education paid for? So spread the word: School Is My Hustle!
