Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Focus on Community College Success] depicts the challenges of the community college student perfectly. Each chapter, while different, addresses the needs of the student, from his need to learn about self, college, or the working world, at large. This is an excellent book."

"This book is a comprehensive foundation for students who want to be successful and are learning to navigate the collegiate environment. It is geared towards the needs of the community college student."
