Summary

Bestselling authors Kathleen McWhorter and Jane Aaron have joined forces to create a spiral, tabbed handbook with exercises for first-year composition students that will give them the real-world skills they need to succeed in college and in their writing courses.

 

The first tab opens with a practical, down-to-earth discussion of study skills, time management, reading strategies, and critical thinking – the essentials for good academic work and excellent papers.  This handbook reaches out to all students who may not already possess a strong foundation for doing college-level work to help them become successful members of the college community.
