The concise and affordable Penguin Academic Edition of College Success Strategies, 2/e, teaches students the skills and strategies that will enable them to be lifelong learners capable of knowing how to approach new and challenging material in college and beyond.Although the first priority of College Success Strategies is to help students learn effectively in their college courses, the skills they learn from this text will serve them well in the future in a variety of learning situations. College Success Strategies is designed to engage students in thought about their own learning and the important role they play in the learning process.Because effective learning is a complex process, the authors have based College Success Strategies on the idea that there are four key factors that must interact for learning to occur: 1.) The characteristics of the learner (motivation, interest, beliefs, etc); 2.) The tasks that students are asked to do (both the level of thinking required and type of assessment); 3.) The strategies that students must use (previewing, annotation, mapping, etc); and 4.) The characteristics of the texts with which students interact (textbooks, lecture, internet, and other sources of information).The strategies used in this book are based on the authors' many years of experience interacting with college students and professors, as well as their own research focusing on how college students study. Students are often unprepared for the study demands of college and therefore overwhelmed and frustrated with the work. It takes more than just a few simple tips for a student to succeed academically and this book is designed to help students obtain lifelong methods and strategies to achieve success in college and beyond.
