Review:

"I like the Master Student Profiles. This permits the student to practice reading skills and comprehend that people can beat the odds. With our students this permits them to see that others have been where they were, stuck on a dirt road and nowhere to go! It seems that presentation of others that have been successful helps to provide visual guidance that success is possible." - Mary LeVan, Brown Mackie College Atlanta

"I love the Power Processes because I have a background in psychology and appreciate the step-by-step approach to self-responsibility and conscious decision making that they offer." - Berta Parrish, Cuesta College
