The only guide to getting ahead once you ve gotten in proven strategies for making the most of your college years, based on winning secrets from the country's most successful students

What does it take to be a standout student? How can you make the most of your college years graduate with honors, choose exciting activities, build a head-turning resume, and gain access to the best post-college opportunities? Based on interviews with star students at universities nationwide, from Harvard to the University of Arizona, How to Win at College presents seventy-five simple rules that will rocket you to the top of the class. These college-tested and often surprising strategies include:
Don t do all your reading
Drop classes every term
Become a club president
Care about your grades, Ignore your GPA
Never pull an all-nighter
Take three days to write a paper
Always be working on a grand project
Do one thing better than anyone else you know
Proving that success has little to do with being a genius workaholic, and everything to do with playing the game, How to Win at College is the must-have guide for making the most of these four important years and getting an edge on life after graduation."
