Overview

The transition to college can be tough, with academic, social, and financial pressures to cope with. While there are a number of successful books on the market that are aimed at easing this transition, The Complete Student is the first to really serve as a companion through the process. This visually dynamic, highly accessible, and profoundly sensible book explores everything a new college student needs to know—from how to find a book in the library to buying a used car; from breaking old habits of procrastination to understanding the dangers of binge drinking; from conquering test anxiety to writing a resume and a cover letter. There's so much to be found in this book, and half the pleasure is in finding it. Designed to be user-friendly and to instill positive feelings and attitudes in the new college student, The Complete Student feels very different from everything that's out there, as it speaks to a contemporary audience in a contemporary way.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The format, if not overdone, is probably the biggest strength of the proposal. A quick, one stop shopping format is one to which the target audience will respond positively. - Kevin Pugh, University of Colorado, Boulder

Great concepts and well thought out topics. - Tobin Burgess, Toyota Financial Services

A book one would want to keep and continue to use as a 'reference.' - Rebecca M. Dedmond, George Washington University
