In some ways, the adult returning to college will find the experience much easier than it would have been in his or her youth, to the extent that the "mature student" will wonder why everyone doesn't wait till adolescence is long gone before engaging with lectures and majors and essays and exams. But while the distractions of youth may be fewer, your certainty about the goal greater and pursuit of it more dedicated, there are complications to adult education, and every bit of preparation helps. In fact, thinking it through, reading a book, and working out some of the conflicts in advance is precisely the sorts of things you probably wouldn't have done at age 18.
Going Back to School covers the admissions process and student-support services, how to deal with math anxiety and term-paper phobia, and how to handle the fears involved in public speaking and exams, as well as other relevant issues, such as organizing your time, juggling your probably complicated responsibilities, and coping with family while you pursue this new goal. Supportive and soothing, in that it's tailored to the concerns of the adult student, this back-to-school guide offers practical suggestions as well as a reinforcement of the notion that you can succeed as an adult in academe. --Stephanie Gold
