No kidding!
& Remake the World
"No student can afford to be without How To Take an Exam… and remake the World authored by a famous professor who reveals the inner secrets of his trade. 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, Editor of Capitalism, Nature, Socialism, and formerly Professor of Sociology, University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz
"A delightful 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
"Humorous, scary and angry… The tips Ollman offers about examinations are flawless, and the wisdom he presents about political economy communicates by anecdote and example rather than by programmatic analysis."
PROF. ANDREW ROSS, Editor of Social Text, and Director, American Studies Program, New York University
"Bertell Ollman has brought together radical scholarship and a hilarious sense of humor to produce this unique book… A wonderfully readable, humorous and critical primer on taking exams and taking on capitalism."
PROF. IRA SHOR, Professor of English, City University of New York
"A wonderful combination of Oxford scholarship and clarity, Marxist insight, Jewish humor, and revolutionary pedagogy, i.e. Ollman at his best."
PROF. SAVAS MICHAEL, Dept. of Philosophy, University of Athens, Greece
