Summary

Constance Staley's exciting new book is uniquely equipped to turn the tides. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, FOCUS ON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS 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, and she improves retention specifically designed for community college students. 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 COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers, directly connecting them with and drawing them into text discussions.
