Steve Staley and Constance Staley's FOCUS ON COLLEGE AND CAREER SUCCESS is uniquely equipped to turn the tides regarding retention among first-year college students, particularly at career, technical, and proprietary schools. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, this text thoroughly engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Steve Staley has been teaching at Colorado Technical University for 30 years and is intimately familiar with the specialized student needs of career and technical students. Constance Staley, one of the best-known names in the field of motivation and student engagement, provides a wealth of tools to help students of varied learning styles succeed in their first year of college and beyond.
