(HealthDayNews) -- If you have one of those college scholarships that requires you to keep your grades up, you might want to first study what kind of professors you have.

According to the journal Adolescence, you should go to each professor's office and try to learn how he works and studies. Is he one of those diligent, organized types, or is he surrounded by open books and illegible sticky notes?

Once you know, just pick the professor whose style is most like your own.

That's because teachers always show a preference for students whose work style is similar to their own, according to a grading study by the Israeli Ministry of Health.
