For courses in Student Success in high school, career college, community college, or university settings.

This working textbook and integrated CD was developed to engage students in assessing their current academic and workplace skills and develop specific action plans to insure both academic and personal success. The first six chapters focus on the internal (or intrapersonal) success skills. Stress management lays the foundation and is followed by positive attitude, time management, and goal setting. Three chapters are devoted to academic skills to include learning styles, critical/creative thinking, improving memory, and test taking.  While the first six chapters focus on how to do well “within yourself”, the last four will deal with succeeding “within your program and beyond.” These skills focus on communication, group interaction, team building, job-seeking, and leadership development.
