Philip Freeman, PhD

ATTENTION Graduating High School Seniors:
This College Guide Should Top Your Summer Reading List!

As freshmen face the culture shock of campus life and reel under the weight of overwhelming academic expectations, Professor Philip Freeman counters the confusion with an insider’s guide to college success.

This friendly, practical primer by an award-winning professor—the one that everyone wishes they could have as their faculty advisor—shows incoming college students how to navigate academic challenges quickly and easily so they not only ace their courses but get the most out of their college experience.

College is hard, but the rules for college success are simple. In Lecture Notes, Freeman charts exactly what new students need to know—from the benefits of a well-chosen faculty advisor and other mentoring relationships with teachers, to straight-forward, no-nonsense study strategies that will put them on the fast track to a rewarding college career.

Drawing on Freeman’s fifteen years of teaching experience at Harvard University, Boston University, Washington University, and Luther College, this book contains the practical know-how that only a veteran professor can provide.

Whether students are attending a small-town junior college, a sprawling mega-campus, or an ivy-league university, Lecture Notes offers timeless advice that will set them up for continued success—in college and beyond. It may not be on the syllabus, but this is one book no beginning student should be without.
