Summary

YOUR GUIDE TO COLLEGE SUCCESS: STRATEGIES FOR ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS, 6th Edition, enables student self-awareness and facilitates active learning strategies in pursuit of college success goals. This practical, experiential textbook presents a six-step model that focuses students on achievable goals: "Know Yourself," "Clarify Your Values," "Develop Your Competence," "Manage Your Life," "Expand Your Resources," and "Build a Bright Future." These themes are consistently applied to such practical topics as goal setting, learning styles, time management, thinking and study skills, communication, relationships, money management, physical and mental health, and career planning. Self-assessments and exercises give students the chance to record their reflections, apply the strategies, and track their success throughout the course.
