PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who are you kidding? No one is completely satisfied with the grades they get on exams or with the life that comes along with it. This book explains why, shows how the two are related, and - with the help of stories, jokes, cartoons, games, myths, statistics, pop quizzes, personal anecdotes, generally hidden facts, practical advice, some analysis and a dash of theory - tells you what you can do to ring the bell on exams and in life. No kidding!


Bertell Ollman, winner of the 1st Charles McCoy Life Time Acheivement Award of New Political Science from the American Political Science Association (2001), has authored many books, among which is Social and Sexual Revolution: Essays on Marx and Reich (Black Rose Books: 1978). He is currently teaching at New York University in the Department of Politics.


Funny, serious, practical, impractical, a delight to read. - Howard Zinn, Boston University


A delighful tour de force that entertains while it educates...An invaluable tool both for taking exams and examining society. - Dr. Michael Parenti, noted author and lecturer


No student can afford to be without How To Take an Exam...don't miss this book, if you want to learn how to beat the system, that is the exam system as well as the political one. - Prof. James O'Connor, University of California, Santa Cruz


Humerous, scary and angry...The tips Ollman offers about examinatons are flawless, and the wisdom he presents about political economy communicates by anecdote and example rather than by programmatic analysis. - Prof. Andrew Ross, New York University


A wonderful combination of Oxford scholarship, Marxist insight, Jewish humor, and revolutionary pedagogy. Ollman at his best. - Michael Savas, University of Athens


Ollman has done it again! He's brought together radical scholarship and a hilarious sense of humor to produce this unique book. - Ira Shor, City University of New York
