I had to read "What the Best College Students Do" for a college honors program intro course. At first the book was great, the 'first hand' accounts made the book interesting and read a lot better than most of my college texts. However, I found the book redundant, Bain never told us what the best college students do besides being a deep learner and I'm not sure what that is. He continues to give the same examples until in the last chapter he finally gives some ways to engage in reading. The book was a quick read and a nice change from the usual college text, but as far as what the 'best college students do' I'm still not sure.

I've always wondered what greatly accomplished people did to have succeeded and how I could tap into that bit of knowledge. Ken Bain does a magnificent job doing more than just giving you advice on how to get good grades but to see the entire world around you as a place for learning and seeing things in a new light. I highly recommend this book to any student who is not sure on what to do or what dreams to follow. It will comfort you to know that great people come from all different backgrounds. Don't miss out in discovering your innate passion for success.

I'm guessing the other reviewers did not take a deep approach to learning and understanding what the author had to say.
