There is a big difference between high school and college. How To Get An A In College will assist in the transition. This great book discusses how to get the grade, how to select a major, how to pick the right classes and instructors. On a more personal note this book assists in managing your time, and avoiding stress.

Writing papers for college again is very different than high school work. This book assists in that endeavor.

I worked for a college library for 10 years. I’ve seen the look of fear in the eyes of the student as they’ve tried to register for classes. They freak out when they try to learn how to do research with the technology or when the instructor gives that first big assignment

This book is easy to read and understand. It covers a broad range of topics. Give this book to your favorite high school student.

How to Get A's in College This is a good book to have around your dorm room. It's not a sit down and read all at once kind of book, but if you take a couple minutes each day to read a few suggestions, you'll find some really good ones that may actually help your study patterns. Like this one:

"I would go to coffee shops and to the school library to get in some quiet time. I also utilized the library at a nearby law school because it was even more quiet and comfortable. If I needed to cram for a test I would go to Denny's sit in a back booth, and work on a pot of coffee."

There are tons of great suggestions and tips from college students who have tried them. Every quote has a name (or anonymous) with a GPA. You know that these students have really looked for the best way to get A's.
