Overview

This academic preparation text provides essential information about academic success through a hands-on approach that uses interactive discussion techniques to cover over 100 success strategies.

The first five chapters lay a foundation for academics success, then chapters 6-11 contain the interactive discussions. Each chapter includes Case Studies that demonstrate how some students have overcome academic hurdles using a variety of success strategies; Take It Away summaries that highlight strategies covered and encourage students to apply them to academic and personal life; and Questions for Critical Thought which allow students to practice critical-thinking skills, reflect on their own difficulties, and assess the strategies most likely to work for them.

  • Features and exercises throughout the text are marked by marginal icons and complement the discussion of success strategies.
  • Points to Ponder highlight an important principle or concept discussed within the chapter.
  • Time to Reflect exercises encourage students to mentally review what they've learned and try to connect to their personal experiences.
  • Hands-on Exercise Breaks range in content and length, encourage group work, and reinforce the application of concepts and strategies.
