Choosing Success in Community College and Beyond meets the needs of occupational students at two-year institutions. By incorporating a decision-making focus into every chapter, it emphasizes accountability and conveys to students how important they are in their own success. Students do not merely become successful, but rather they choose to be successful.
Choice starts with the decision to acquire a secondary education, and from then on everything students do is based on their decision-making skills. The more they practice good decision-making, the more control they have over their successes and failures. This book is unique in that it provides students with a process for decision-making as well as numerous opportunities to think through the choices and decisions they face as a college student - and beyond.
