Bookstore shelves are crowded with books offering advice to college students, yet astonishingly none of these books offer needed advice to the majority of college students in the United States those attending community college. Of the approximately 21 million full- and part-time college students, 11 million attend community colleges.

The Community College Guide aims to help fill this huge gap. The authors of this book have decades of experience between them as professors and administrators in both two-year and four-year colleges, have written numerous books for a general readership and thoroughly understand what community college students need to know to succeed in their college careers.

From how to apply to community colleges to what to expect from your courses, from the truth about what you’ll pay to actual financial aid opportunities, The Community College Guide offers a wealth of information for the millions of American students who desire higher education at the community level.

About the Author:

Joshua Halberstam began his higher-education teaching career at Brookdale Community College where he taught philosophy for several years. His subsequent teaching stints included elite four year and professional schools such as NYU (from where he received his PhD in philosophy). Currently Dr. Halberstam is an adjunct professor at Teacher's College (Columbia University) and at a New York City community college. In addition to his professional publications in philosophy and education, Dr. Halberstam has published books for the general reader, both nonfiction and (forthcoming) fiction. Among his books is Acing College (Penguin) which has gone into multiple printings. Dr. Halberstam is a frequent guest on national television and radio (e.g. four-time guest on Oprah) as well as a guest lecturer at a wide array of institutions, most recently at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

Residence: New York, NY

Dr. Debra Gonsher is the head of the Humanities Division and Chairperson of the Communication Arts & Sciences Department at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York. She has taught at four and two year schools throughout the metropolitan area including Kean College of New Jersey, City College and Hunter. Her most recent publication is the college textbook CareerSpeak: Articulation and Presentation. A documentary filmmaker, she has spoken extensively at film festivals, on the lecture circuit and on serial radio promotional tours. Her most recent documentary won a 2006 Emmy Award.

Residence: New York, NY

Review:

"This is the guide that has been missing from the vast library of college guides. It has all the essential practical information you will need on every aspect of the community college experience." --Kathleen Williams, Director of General Education Program, Cogswell Polytechnical College
