From the Back Cover:

 

Whether choosing to attend school to pursue a new career or to seek advancement in a current career, students will find New Beginnings an invaluable resource to help guide their journey.  Providing much needed relevance to the adult college experience, this book focuses on adjusting to student-life, juggling responsibilities, maximizing resources, brushing up on basic grammar and math skills, and more.
 
As it builds on skills adults already use in their work and life, they hone many skills including...

  • Making successful oral presentations
  • Managing collaborative work projects
  • Conducting research on the Internet
  • Financing their adult education

 “I like this book. It is easy to read, covers relevant material and guides the student in a supportive manner.”

Bethany Marcus, Ph.D.

 "This is the book that provides opportunity for students to reflect upon themselves in terms of returning to an academic environment as a non-traditional student given the tools necessary for academic success.”

Deborah A. Herzog

Lewis & Clark Community College
