Review:

I love the descriptors of a motivated learner, overcoming barriers (things we can control) and the self reflection.  Motivation is a huge problem and this text breaks it down in a way I’ve not seen.  Most textbooks discuss the differences between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation but I have never seen a text actually help students with a practical plan if they just cannot get motivated which is an epidemic among college students...this is a very strong component of this text.

Overall, I liked all of the exercises. In some texts, authors are in such a rush to put in more strategies that they do not take the time to ask the student to reflect on what he/she has learned or think about how he/ she can use this information.  It’s in reflecting on what you have learned that learning truly takes place.  Without reflection and thinking, students may be just ‘going through the motions.’  Without this metacognition students won’t be able to transfer this knowledge to new situations or courses.
