College Bound Students Will Benefit From New Academic Guide, Aimed At Success

Study guide published for college bound students. You Can Nail It: How to Get Into a Professional Program, on Amazon.com outlines a comprehensive guide for Medical School, Law School, and Dental School Success. By David. R. Gross, DVM, PhD

 
PRLog - May 18, 2011 - An academic guide, aimed at college bound students has been published by Dr. David R. Gross of Edmonds, Washington.   With the intention of helping graduate students follow in his footsteps, Dr. Gross outlines a plan for college and university students to successfully compete in any postgraduate program.  

The guide is entitled, “You Can Nail It: How to Get Into a Professional Program”.
Visit http://www.amazon.com/You-Can-Nail-It-ebook/dp/B004VXNIV0... for details.

Dr. Gross describes his book thusly, “Imagine what it feels like to nail a three-point basket, just as the buzzer goes off, and win the game! A lot of preparation and practice are necessary to make that happen. You can duplicate that feeling when you open the letter accepting you into medical, dental or veterinary school. To have a successful career in medicine, veterinary medicine or dentistry students must be able to compete.

This guide is for only those students who want to do everything possible to gain acceptance into a medical, dental or veterinary school. It teaches how to prepare and how to practice for academic competition. Successful students prepare themselves by improving their time management skills and learning efficiency. Improving learning efficiency results in better understanding, better mastery of the material, and better grades (the score). Efficient and effective learning also provides maximum free time for non-academic activities, a critical part of the total learning experience.”

He adds, “Each year, at least half a million North American students enter the first year of higher education expressing their intention of gaining admission into one of three medical professional programs. Available data indicate that only 55,000 -60,000 of these candidates actually apply to medical, dental or veterinary schools in the U.S. and Canada each year. The low percentage of applicants results because students with average or poor grades realize they will not be competitive.”

Gross graduated from Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1960 and was in private veterinary practice for ten years. He enrolled in graduate school and earned a M.Sc. degree in 1972 and a PhD degree in 1974 from the Ohio State University. He taught and did research at Texas A & M University College of Veterinary Medicine for sixteen years then became Director of the Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Research laboratories at the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine for five years. He retired in 2006 after twelve years as Professor and Head of Veterinary Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

A member of the Edmonds writers’ community, Gross also serves as a member of the steering committee for City of Edmonds’ Write On The Sound and as moderator of the newly-formed Edmonds Publishing Cooperative.
