Top 10 Secrets of College Success

t's out! Our new book, The Secrets of College Success, is now available "wherever books are sold." For loyal followers of this U.S. News blog—and for web surfers who just stopped by—we offer our 10 best tips for college success (the book has 627 more): 

1. Take control.

For many students, the most striking difference between college and high school is that at college there's no one there to stand over you and tell you what to do. Getting to class, doing the homework, getting your papers in on time—all of these are things you're going to have to do without a parent or teacher to beat on you. Step up to bat and take responsibility. You're in charge of this thing.

2 Audition your professors. Many entering students think they should just take the "standard first-year program" their adviser hands them, and be done with it. But a far better idea is to go to the first class or two and assess the professor. Ask yourself: Is the material presented clearly and forcefully? Does the class have a clear point? Is the professor at least moderately engaging? Is this someone I feel I can learn from? If the answer to any of these questions is "no," drop the class and find another.

3. Get to class. Most students have a "cutting budget": the number of classes they think they can miss and still do pretty well in the course. For four, five, six, seven classes, you might think: "No problem, I'll get the notes." But, miss seven classes and (if the course has 35 meetings) you've missed 20 percent of the content. This can do major damage to your GPA come the tests. 

4. Adjust your attention span. You're used to getting your content in short, entertaining blasts: one- to three-minute YouTube videos, hyperabbreviated text messages, and 140-character tweets. But your professor is thinking in terms of a 50-minute lecture, divided into perhaps two or three segments. Retrain your attention span to process long—very long, it will seem—units of content (rather than zoning in and out as things strike you).

5. Study; don't "study." Though nobody quite tells you this, at college most of the work is done outside the classroom. Rule of thumb: one hour of lecture, two hours of preparation. As soon as the semester starts, find yourself a quiet place to study and block out the times of the week you're going to do the studying. Above all, don't count study-related activities as actual studying: copying over your notes, getting the e-readings, listening to the lecture again, and "getting acquainted" with your study group are all fine activities, but they don't count as studying. 

6. Always answer exactly the question asked. More points are lost on tests and papers by not answering the question asked than by giving the wrong answer. Professors go to great lengths to craft appropriate questions (and sub-questions) and expect head-on answers to exactly what they asked—rather than general surveys of an area, dumps of everything you know about the subject, or rambling garbage. 

7. Take each test three times. Before the exam, construct a pre-test (use questions from the study guide, from last year's exam, or from hints the professor dropped in lecture) and take it under "test conditions" (write it out, under strict time limit, with no looking at the book). At the actual exam, write full answers that draw on all the course materials (lectures, readings, and discussions) and that would be clear to any intelligent reader. Then, when you get your test back, go over any comments your instructor has written and do the question again in your head, given the new information. 

8. Connect with your professor (or TA). The single most underutilized resource at college is the office hour, now available in-person, by e-mail, or by Skype. You might not have realized it, but professors are required to be in their office two to four hours a week to meet with students and help them with the course. Your tests and papers will go better if you've had a chance to ask about things you're confused about, and, with any luck, received some guidance from the professor about what your thesis sentence should be or what's going to be on the test.

9. Never major on the way in. There's tremendous pressure these days at many colleges for students to declare a major either at orientation or very early in the first year. Unless you're 100 percent, positively, without a doubt sure about what you want to study, don't. A much better idea is to take three or four courses in the field—some introductory, some advanced—and then see what it's actually like to work in that field. And don't double or triple major unless there's some academic reason to do so: marketing and Mandarin Chinese, or chemistry and microbiology, go well together; art history and ichthyology—well, that's a combination for the birds. 

10. Pursue your passion. Amidst all the distribution courses, general education requirements, prerequisites, and must-do's for the major, it's easy to forget what your intellectual interests, gifts, and passion were in the first place. Each semester, be sure to take at least one course in something you're good at and are really interested in. The joy of doing something you enjoy—and doing it well—will go a long way to making up for all the unpleasant things you have to do at college. Guaranteed.

Five things successful PhD students refuse to do

Too many PhD students feel as if they can’t do anything but show up to the lab and look busy. Photograph: Alamy When my first year as a PhD student became a daily grind of going to several classes a day and learning endless new experiments and procedures in the lab, I looked around for inspiration from older and more successful students.

What were they doing differently? I eventually realised that the high-achieving postgrads all had one thing in common: refusal. Here are five things they simply refused to do:

1) Feel like a failure

Like most other students, I started my PhD as one of the smartest kids in college. But in graduate school, everyone was smart. I was no longer special – I was normal. I went from being a big fish in a small pond to just being a fish. I came to realise that a lot of students felt like failures. Some of them were able to shake this feeling. But others went on to develop mental illnesses. One student, whom I knew personally, ended up taking his own life after just one year.

Feeling like a failure as a PhD student is a serious issue. Studies and reports increasingly show that mental illness is on the rise in academia. One of the biggest reasons that it's rising is because many academicsare perfectionists and are not willing to accept failure as part the process of learning. Many of them are also unwilling to reach out to other students or faculty for help. Instead, they isolate themselves and work harder and harder until something snaps.

Successful PhD students aren't perfectionists and they refuse to isolate themselves. These students realise that failing is the fastest way to learn.

They're not ashamed to say, "I don't know." They're also not ashamed to ask for help, especially when they're facing very real problems like depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. Admitting that you don't know something or asking for help is not defeat, it's success.

The key is to allow for failure without feeling like a failure. If you do start feeling like a failure, don't isolate yourself. Instead, reach out. Ask for help and allow others to support you.

2) Feel out of control

It's easy to feel out of control as a postgraduate student. Our adviser controlled us in the lab, reviewers controlled which of our articles would get published, and our thesis committees controlled when we could graduate. The ball seemed to perpetually be in someone else's court. But this was just a matter of our perspective.

The truth is, you always have control over your life. Take back control by making something happen for yourself. Start a blog or take up a new hobby. Too many postgrads feel as if they can't do anything but show up to the lab and grind out experiments, or sit at their desk and look busy so their advisers don't get angry. This is ridiculous.

It's your life. Go live it. You'll be more productive with a side project than if you just wait around waiting for permission to publish and graduate.

3) See themselves as employees

One of the biggest paradoxes in postgraduate study is that students are trained both to be highly innovative and to respect academic tradition. How can you push the cutting edge while being confined by a large and powerful system?

Likewise, how can you create or build anything at all on a zero-hours contract where you can be let go at anytime?

The hard truth is that the current academic environment is very unstable right now. It's not longer a safe haven for people who just want pay rent, look after their families, and attend a few conferences every year.

However, while security and opportunity may be lacking in academia at the moment, it's flourishing everywhere else. In the first six months of 2013, over 90,000 new ventures were created in the UK, a 3.4% increase on 2012. Many academics have formed their own companies or collaborated with successful startup businesses while continuing to work in academia. All it takes is an idea and a little networking to start opening up new streams of income for yourself.

Never forget that you're an innovator – a creator. Refuse to become dependent on the system you're in. Too many postgraduates are trained to think that there is only one way to secure a paycheck every month. So they settle for full-time research scientist positions or mid-level jobs in corporate R&D departments without ever taking on anything else.

Scientists make great entrepreneurs. Very few people get the chance to be trained specifically in innovation. But you do. Use this to your advantage.

4) Stress about getting published

Publications carry a lot of value in academia, but this is slowly changing. People are realising that it doesn't make sense for a few gatekeepers to control which content has the biggest impact. Why should the owners of the one or two biggest journals get to decide the fate of your scientific career, or even the fate of science in general? It doesn't make sense. Too many postgraduate students work themselves to exhaustion trying to add a couple of papers to their CV so they can one day get tenure.

Working hard for a crowning achievement like being published in a high-impact journal is fine. The key is to keep some perspective. Realise that publishing in a second-tier or open-source journal is something to be proud of and realise that you can always publish in the future, from industry or otherwise.

Your goal during postgrad study should be to build your knowledge base and your network, nothing else. The truth is you don't need to publish a Nature paper during your postgrad to get your PhD. You don't even have to publish a first-author paper to graduate if you don't want to. Stop chasing this kind of approval and open yourself up to the many opportunities for learning and connecting that are happening all around you.

5) Turn their back on business opportunities

A university is a business and it needs to secure funding to survive. Successful PhD students know this and, as a result, value business training. They go to conferences and introduce themselves to business professionals at the vendors' show. They take business classes, join business and entrepreneurship meetup groups, and work to establish an online presence.

Don't wait until you're about to defend your thesis to start developing your business skills. Do it now. Refuse to be left behind.

Successful students spend at least half of their time connecting with as many other people as possible, while also taking time to follow up with their network consistently.

Some simple but effective ways to do this include talking to presenters after seminars and reaching out online to other academic authors. Find their email addresses and tell them what you liked about their article or ask them an insightful question. Then follow up with them every couple of weeks until you establish a strong connection.
