College Rules! saves students time and trouble, revealing insider tips to achieving success from the get-go. Lesson #1: college is different from high school, and even those who were at the top of their class in high school need practical advice on how to succeed in college. This updated fourth edition features the latest information about e-learning technologies, including how to approach e-books and the virtual supports that come with traditional textbooks, how to take lecture notes on laptops and tablets, how to get the most out of online courses, how to navigate virtual study groups and professors' virtual office hours, and how to cope with online distractions.
