Chattanooga graduate releases self-published book written from eight
years of college experiences.
(PRWEB) -- With eight years of college, one

What about those graduates who take longer to get their first
bachelor's degree? Class of 2003 graduate, James S. Parker, spent the
first few years of his college career making all the wrong decisions.
Unlike many students who give up and drop out, James chose to change
his habits and became successful in college. Through his years of
college life he started writing down his lessons learned. Now, he has
shared those revelations in his self-published book entitled
“My College Tips.”
“My College Tips” is a great gift idea for
graduating high school seniors and new college students. With 50
different topics and over 450 actual tips, there is no aspect of
college that gets left out. The book's accompanying website allows
students to use additional resources and to connect to other sources of
information that aid in the confusing world of college.
What makes Mr. Parker so special? Nothing; he was an average high
school student that attended five different
colleges, changed his major numerous times, and finally found a way to
get his bachelor's degree. Mr. Parker is not the only one to take the
hard path to get a college degree. The average amount of time for a
student to receive a bachelor's degree is 5.2 years.
With college tuition increasing each year, the need for guidance and
help is critical to minimizing cost and time spent on a college
education. Dr. Kittrell Rushing, Professor at the University of
Tennessee Chattanooga, reviewed the book saying, “Parker's
guide for new college students provides realistic answers to many of
the challenges that confront freshmen.” Mr. Parker states,
“My goal in writing this book is for a student to learn a few
things that will benefit their college experience.”
