About the Book

You've come a great distance to study in a new land, but now that you're here, you've discovered that education is very different in the West. You fear that you do not have the skills to succeed in this new environment. Fear no longer.

Here is your guide to all things academic in the West, from educational philosophy to life in the classroom, to relationships with professors. As you read, you will learn how to organize your time, complete a variety of assignments, navigate the library, produce high quality research essays and write examinations with confidence.

I admire international students. You have courage. You have motivation. You have endurance. There is every reason for you to do well if you have the proper understanding of Western education. This handbook is intended to help you gain that understanding, accomplish all your educational goals and graduate triumphantly.
