Summary

FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, thoroughly engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Staley, one of the best-known names in the field of motivation and focus, increases the credibility of the college success course by providing tools that help students improve retention. Thoroughly researched, the text covers the topics most important to student success and incorporates underlying themes of motivation and self-discipline throughout. Rather than talking down to students or speaking over their heads, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, strikes a personal and informal conversation with readers--directly connecting with and drawing them into text discussions.
