Say This, NOT That to Your Professor: 36 Talking Tips for College Success is dedicated to the student-professor relationship and to giving students the exact words they need to competently and confidently deal with challenging classroom situations. The text teaches readers to communicate professionally and gives insight into issues that play a critical role in their college experiences.
