Looking for a book that includes all the information a community college student needs to know when they arrive on campus? The Community College Experience, PLUS Edition 2/e is the survival book with all the study skills and life skills material plus encouragement for the community college student to succeed.
Each chapter opens with a real-to-life student story related to the chapter topic and contains a dilemma. The student employs higher order thinking through in-chapter exercises that require them to think critically, discuss and collaborate, problem solve, and finally apply a solution to the chapter opener. Students are also directed to reflect on their own backgrounds, personalities, and learning preferences to make decisions about actions they would and should take.
“Excellent text. Chapter One really makes the student feel a part of the college community, not the other way around. This text is needed.” - Ellen Vician, College of DuPage
“I am so pleased to see the newest brain information included… I am glad to see critical thinking included with brain and memory information. They naturally go together. I would be very excited to teach this.” - Allison Perrin, South Plains College
