Overview

BECOMING A MASTER STUDENT Fifteenth Edition is all about "Embracing the new". As students begin their education, they embrace a new culture and need new tools to be successful.

Beginning with a new Power Process motivational article called "Embracing the new" students will be empowered to try new tools presented in the textbook to enhance their experience in college and in life. Tools like the Discovery Wheel and Discovery and Intention Journal System to Power Process articles, Master Student Profiles, and the Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI), have made BECOMING A MASTER STUDENT the bestselling College Success textbook and will give students a deeper knowledge of themselves and their power to be successful in college.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have looked over other books that try to deliver what [Becoming a Master Student] delivers, and none of them have the combination and presentation of materials put together as well as this one. I believe I've used four or five editions of this text in class, and, even having grown very familiar and comfortable with it, I still find new angles on traditional concepts that I can help students grasp more effectively. I believe the organization and presentation of ideas and concepts in this text helps me discover these new angles or perspectives on concepts and ideas."

"The key strengths of Becoming a Master Student include variety, great supportive ancillary materials, and activities that students can relate to, like, and enjoy."
