Description

Designed for courses in Student Orientation, Student Success, and College/University Preparation. This engaging text emphasizes thinking and learning by connecting the skills needed to succeed in the post-secondary environment to career and life skills. End-of-chapter exercises reinforce four major skills: thinking, teamwork, writing and strategic thinking/planning. This learn-by-doing approach helps students discover their abilities first-hand. Keys to Success also emphasizes the concept of Multiple Intelligences. Every student learns in a different way, and Keys shows how every hurdle can be overcome by applying a strategy derived from knowing your own learning style. New "Stressbusters" boxes in each chapter contain advice from Canadian students about how to effectively combat stress in situations that relate to chapter subjects.show more
