Short and to-the-point, A Pocket Guide to College Success, offers practical coverage on the topics typically covered in a full-size college success text, from academic skills like managing time, critical thinking, note taking, and college technology to life skills such as health, stress reduction, and money management. This new text by Jamie Shushan focuses on helping students ask the right questions of the right people so that they drive their own college success.This textbook is ideal for any orientation program or first-year experience where a full-size text provides too much content.
