Entering College for me was like a deer entranced by the headlights, I had no idea of the freight train behind it...Wham! It hit me, and I didn't even have a clue... It never occurred to me to consider how to get organized for the college, how to take notes, how to develop questions to ask, and how to pick out what was really important from the text. This book helped me get it together, otherwise I may have ended up as a drop out...... I made past college and onto a career & family.
