About the Author:

For more than 30 years, Dr. Hopper has been involved with Student Success at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. She is a nationally known lecturer and workshop leader on topics such as learning how to learn, learning styles, memory, time management, effective classroom techniques, and using technology in the classroom. She is a frequent guest at the National and Fall Energizer conferences for College Survival and is active in the NADE and CRLA organizations. Carolyn's Study Skills website (http://capone.mtsu.edu/studskl/) has been visited by more than a million people! When asked to describe her teaching style, Carolyn says: "I am first of all enthusiastic about learning how to learn. I get excited about learning and hopefully my students catch the spirit. My classes are a combination of lecture supported by many visuals and hands-on activities. Skills for being successful in college are learned by doing. So, once students understand a concept, my aim for them is to develop the skills by practice and make modification to the skills that will work for them. A student in my class can expect homework due every class period. My style may seem casual and somewhat laid back, but each class is carefully planned with goals and objectives in mind. I am extremely demanding but would like to think that I am patient. I try to make sure that everything we do in class is backed up on the website."

Review:

"I really love using Hopper's Practicing College Learning Strategies. It's simple and easily understood. I have not seen another college success textbook that outlines such specific strategies for students to immediately put to use. I can use this text as a great starting point and then build on it according to what my students need that semester."

"This is a good book, and I haven't found one better."

"I like the way this text is written, and all of the applications that are available to the students throughout the text."
