Overview

YOUR GUIDE TO COLLEGE SUCCESS: STRATEGIES FOR ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS, 6th Edition, enables student self-awareness and facilitates active learning strategies in pursuit of college success goals. This practical, experiential textbook presents a six-step model that focuses students on achievable goals: "Know Yourself," "Clarify Your Values," "Develop Your Competence," "Manage Your Life," "Expand Your Resources," and "Build a Bright Future." These themes are consistently applied to such practical topics as goal setting, learning styles, time management, thinking and study skills, communication, relationships, money management, physical and mental health, and career planning. Self-assessments and exercises give students the chance to record their reflections, apply the strategies, and track their success throughout the course.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I think [the Santrock/Halonen text] speaks to students on a mature level, even though it's covering the basics. Sometimes, the language in first year texts is… too simplistic, and students feel demeaned or demoralized by it. This book covers the topics in a way that's very matter-of-fact without making students feel stupid. I know my students would appreciate the tone and level of the book."

"I like the quotes, the success interviews, the interactive homework and the journaling activities and exercises. The use of color pictures and cartoons reinforce main points and subject areas. Thanks for a GREAT textbook!"

"Very accurate, current, and comprehensive, and perhaps equally important, it's ACCESSIBLE!"—Rebecca Cole, Northern Arizona University

"This is a well-written text. The features at the end of each chapter are especially valuable and thought provoking. . . . This is a high-quality product and should be adopted by many schools!"

Booknews
