For courses at all levels in Academic Assistance Programs, developmental departments, and freshman/sophomore-level orientation courses.

Unique in focus and approach, this text not only gets right to the heart of what students need to succeed academically in higher education today-where a vast amount of information coupled with limited time can easily overwhelm those with weak or no knowledge of efficient and effective learning strategies-but it does so in a manner that readily appeals to today's action-oriented students who function in a fast-paced world that values excellence. Written by an expert in the field-and reflecting advice of students who were actually encountering the daily challenges of college life-it is filled with practical suggestions for all aspects of the college academic experience-from preparing for college to graduation-and is applicable to a variety of learning situations. Exceptionally user-friendly in appearance and organization, it features an upbeat, informal tone, a conversational and interactive style, abundant visuals, and a quick-access format-making it a welcome resource for even the most frustrated student. Each section can be used independently or blended together to form an integrated whole.
