About The Author
Dennis Stemmle, is a college professor, bestselling author, parent of a college student, and founder of College Success Academy. As a college professor, he has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, when it comes to student performance.
I never knew how big our education problem was until my son struggled in his first year of college. As a top-performing high school student, he got into all his desired colleges, and we just never were worried about him performing well.
However, his excitement from his college acceptances, the prospects of moving out of the house, and his embracing his independence, quickly led to frustration, stress, and surprise struggles. After his first semester, our straight-A high school student found himself on academic probation. That's when I knew I had to figure out why millions of top high school seniors struggle to succeed in college.
I spent months talking to students, looking for similarities, trends, and kernels of knowledge that could help me understand the challenges and issues faced by students transiting from high school to college.
As a result, student success became my new mission. Inside the pages of this book, students will find a complete roadmap for making great grades, having more fun, and studying less
"After giving this a read, I related with the "If you fall behind" chapter, I had hit a slump in the middle of my first semester and didn't know if or how I was going to catch up. I tried different techniques, and not much was helping, but I now realize how big it is to really talk and communicate with your professors; they want you to succeed as much as you want yourself to. I think that's a big take away from not only this book but in life." -Fred Payton, a student at Coastal Carolina University
"This book is a great guide for students that are considering going to college. Reading this made me want to continue my college education. College is extremely hard, and I did not have much guidance going into it. I am also the procrastinator, and honestly, that is the worst thing ever because I would turn in assignments right at the deadline." -Abria Brown, a student at Mary Baldwin University
