This is a book about personal choices--responsible choices that will help students get what they want from school and life.Throughout the text,students are asked, “What are you doing to get what you want?”  Each chapter and every activity demonstrates how responsible decision-making and follow-through put potential and ambition into action. Potential is the ability; ambition is the desire; and initiative is the doing.Choices for College Success demonstrates how organized action enhances academic success and helps create a healthy and balanced life.  As one reviewer stated, “The text tells the reader WHAT they need to know and HOW they need to do it.” Core changes to this edition include a pre-assessment, new financial management chapter, revised and enhanced information literacy coverage, and test taking is expanded to two chapters (prep and performance).

*Rhythms of College Success (1st edition) has matured into Choices for College Success (2nd edition). ROCS (1st) carried three themes throughout the book. CHOICES (2nd) hones in on one main, yet critical, life skill: turning words into actions.
