About the Book
STEM EDUCATION SUCCESS TOOLS DESPITE A CORRUPT COLLEGE SYSTEM:
Are you thinking of a career in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, or Medicine)? If you are a student, the education system is stacked against you. This book shows students and their parents what they are up against and how to succeed despite a corrupt university system. Colleges take your tuition, provide inadequate education, and then blame the students when forty to sixty percent of STEM students fail out in the first two years, resulting in student financial losses and sometimes permanent damage to individual self-esteem.
This book provides strategies on how to select less incompetent schools and then how to succeed in them despite the level of inadequate education you will experience. 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 your college aid. For these reasons alone, high school juniors, seniors, college students, and their parents need to read this book before making disastrous decisions about college.
If you have already been abused by our STEM "mis-education system," this book will give you strategies to return to college and succeed despite the wounds you have already suffered.
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.
Growing up prior to the term “ADHD” popularization, teachers classified Leon Roomberg as “trouble.” With financial challenges, he attended six different colleges intermittently. He earned Bachelor and Master degrees, certifications in Project Management and Database Administration, then attended doctoral courses at three different colleges. With four decades of technical and managerial experience, Leon hired more than a hundred people, mentored many, founded several small businesses and maintained a non-profit counseling practice. It was during more than two dozen father-son college tours that the ideas for his book, “The STEM Student Survival Guide,” took form. Teachers still think he is “trouble.”
