Authored by John Santrock, a prominent developmental psychologist, and Jane Halonen, an educational leader in critical thinking, this concise text appeals to instructors who want to emphasize student self-awareness in the pursuit of college success goals, as well as active learning strategies. This new edition features iLrn College Success-an integrated testing, tutorial, and class management system that is as powerful as it is easy to use. iLrn correlates self assessments, electronic journals that encourage students to reflect on their progress, essay questions and exercises, and "Test Your Knowledge" interactive quizzes to each of the ten chapters in this concise text. Other highlights in this new edition: the latest research in motivational strategies, including revisions to the "Six Strategies for Succcess" model that provide more opportunities for active learning, new "Career Connections" that apply chapter concepts to real-world job situations, new and updated "Images of College Success" features that open each chapter and show how real students have mastered the college experience to become successful in their chosen fields, and "Learning Portfolios" that personalize learning for each student.

About the Author:

JOHN W. SANTROCK, Ph.D., is a leading author of college success and psychology textbooks. He is a professor of psychology and human development at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), where he helped to establish the college success program. More than two million students have used his top-selling texts, which include PSYCHOLOGY: CONTEXTS, SCIENCE, AND APPLICATIONS.

Review:

"This book covers the material and provides the exercises in such a way that students can value the book by actively participating in it rather than just using it as a reading text."

"This book could be the difference between success and failure."

"I love the beginning of the chapters that share the images of college success."

"The exercises for the students in each chapter were ideal. I liked the self-assessments, "Where Are You?" exercises, "Where Are You Now?" exercises and the exercises in the learning portfolio."
