Overview

This book provides basic information and encouragement for the first-time community college student and the non-traditional student–it shows that attending college and balancing work with family can be accomplished. It covers a range of topics, examines reasons for attending college, teaches study techniques, and explores life after community college. Each chapter discusses a major “college survival” topic and provides a wealth of information for anyone who has stepped onto campus for the first time. This new edition streamlines the chapters and presents topics as they naturally unfold during the first semester in college. The very important issue of time management is integrated throughout the book so that students can discover different ways of staying on task.
