Bruce Beiderwell, Linda F. Tse, Tom Lochhaas & Nicholas B. deKanter
In writing College Success, Bruce Beiderwell, Linda F. Tse, Tom Lochhaas, and Nicholas B. deKanter’s goals were simple:
- To prepare students prepared for a college education with the study and life skills they need to become successful students
- To apply a new approach to college success for students who may struggle with traditional college textbooks
- To ensure students are finding value in their learning and continuing their education.
- REALISTIC, PRACTICAL TOOLS:
- STRAIGHTFORWARD STYLE:
- EMPHASIS ON SELF-EVALUATION:
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Freshmen Orientation, Study Skills or Student Success courses
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4-year institutions.
The focus is on realistic, practical tools for the students who need them. This is a book designed, frankly, for students who may have difficulty with traditional college textbooks.
The style is direct and to the point. Information is presented concisely and as simply as possible. This is not a weighty tome that discusses student success—this is a manual for doing it.
In every chapter, students have the opportunity to explore their personal beliefs and values, make their own goals, and determine what success in college really means for them as individuals. Most important, students always see the value of what they are reading—and how they can begin to apply it immediately in their own lives.
