Are you interested in a well rounded approach to success, including both academic and personal fulfillment? This working textbook and integrated CD engages students in assessing their current academic and workplace skills and developing specific action plans to ensure both academic and personal success. The first six chapters focus on how to do well “within yourself” or intrapersonal skills with topics such as stress management, positive attitude, time management, and goal setting. The middle chapters are devoted to academic skills including learning styles, critical/creative thinking, improving memory, and test taking. The last four will deal with succeeding “within your program and beyond” and address communication, group interaction, team building, job-seeking, and leadership development.

“WOW!! This is just what new students need in a book!! I can’t state how impressed I am with this author and the text. This approach will be very effective for new students.”
--Michelle Buchman, Everest College
“The examples are exceptional and very in touch with the realities of the student. This is rare in most textbooks. In most books it seems as if the author might be trying very hard to understand what the student is really going through. However, this text has the feel and attitude that the author truly understands the challenges of the college student and has practical and realistic advice. It does and excellent job at this.”
--Theresa Tuttle, ECPI College of Technology
