Book: “STEM Student Survival Guide,” Aims to Prevent Failures and Rescue Those Who Do
- Are you thinking of pursuing a career in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, or Medicine)? If you are a student, the education system is stacked against you.
- During more than two dozen father-son college tours, Entrepreneur and Computer Systems Architect Leon Roomberg uncovered the ways even colleges with stellar reputations mislead prospective STEM students. The colleges award eight to ten times the amount of scholarships and aid available, then enable teachers to “curve down” STEM grades.
- As a result, about half of all STEM students “fail out” of their major. Then about half of the remainder lose all of their financial aid and as a result, pay full tuition not for four years, but for five or six years when “make-up” courses extend their college adventure.
- Seven years of research followed those tours to define the skills and techniques that almost any STEM student can use to prevent failures, reduce stress, and graduate with finances and sanity intact.
- The STEM Student Survival Guide provides strategies on how to select less incompetent schools and then how to succeed despite unfair challenges. From course selection to course scheduling; from selecting your peers and study groups to selecting your tutors, this book gives you strategies to be part of the fifteen to twenty percent who graduate in the expected number of years, and graduate without forfeiting any college aid you accept.
- For these reasons alone, high school juniors, seniors, college students, and their parents need to read this book before making disastrous decisions about college. For students who have already failed out of their major, this book provides a path back to success in the major and career you really want.
- If you are a parent, don't let your kid go to college until you have BOTH read this book. If you are a guidance counselor or school librarian, this book is the best resource to prepare your students for a STEM career.
