Should I choose maximize tax credits and deductions if I have a student in college?

Yes, if you mean should you use the education credit optimizer in the Education Credit section, you definitely should. 

 

This option compares all the possible combinations of credits and deductions that you can get based on what you have entered so far. 

 

If that's not what you were asking about, please respond back with more detail and TurboTax can help you further.
