Overview

This new CD-ROM to accompany YOUR GUIDE TO COLLEGE SUCCESS continues the book's mission to motivate and engage first-year students by connecting student's needs and self-reflection to the exercises and action steps proven to help students stay in college and succeed. The CD-ROM employs the College Success Checklists found at the start of every chapter in the book to guide students to the exercises, advice, pages in the book, and Internet resources that best address their individual needs. Many of the exercises from the book have been reformatted on the CD-ROM making it easier for the students to complete and keep for future reference. In addition, the CD-ROM includes a quiz and crossword puzzle in every chapter for further student review; journal assignments that students can complete on the computer; InfoTrac College Edition exercises to expand students' access to information beyond the text; and a Mission Statement Builder exercise courtesy of Premier Agendas. As a bonus, Franklin Covey offers a free 120 day trial of the Franklin Planner Software™—the same planner used on the Palm Pilot. This powerful CD-ROM is also available on WebCT and Blackboard online course management tools.
