Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


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.
