The Eleventh Edition of Becoming a Master Student raises the bar for Student Success texts. While the vision and proven content of the text has been maintained, the Eleventh Edition has been rejuvenated with a cleaner, more sophisticated design to address comments that the previous layout was too "busy" and "MTV-like." The new design appeals to both traditional students and adult learners. Other enhancements include: a new, organizational framework that provides structure throughout the text and helps students learn to monitor thinking and learning; career application case studies at the end of each chapter that allow students to apply new skills to the workplace environment right away; improved integration of learning styles within each chapter to make addressing the four modes of learning easier; and expanded coverage of Multiple Intelligences and a new Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic inventory in to help students discover more about their individual learning styles. The long-standing best seller in student success, Becoming a Master Student gives students a framework for examining their lives from a self-discovery perspective. Through a student-created and value-based approach to life and learning, the text inspires and motivates students to acquire and develop the skills needed for success in college and throughout life. Articles, strategies, and exercises help students understand their strengths and weaknesses, set goals, and practice academic and life skills. New! Master Student Map (Metacognitive Application Process) feature provides an organizational framework that introduces each chapter and acts as a common theme throughout the text to guide students in monitoring thinking and learning. A reasoning model based on the Learning Styles Inventory, the map helps students understand why the chapter matters, what is included in the chapter, how they can use the chapter, and what to think about as they read ("As you read, ask yourself what if..."). New! Power Process: "Discover What You Want" establishes the motivation for students to act on their goals. This new Power Process is found in the Introduction. New! Technology chapter (Chapter 10) assists students in mastering learning in an online environment; finding useful, accurate information on the Internet; and taking part in online communities that promote success. New! Put it to Work feature--an in-depth article at the end of each chapter--shows students how skills apply to the world of work. Similarly, the feature discusses how skills developed in the workplace can translate to academic work. The Introduction has been enhanced by the Master Student Map and with the addition of essential advice on making the transition to college and locating campus resources. Goal Setting coverage has been enhanced: The exercise "Divide and Conquer your Goals" from the Tenth Edition has been integrated into a new article and exercise, "Setting and Achieving Goals." Similar exercises throughout the book ask students to re-think and refine their goals. The newly titled chapter 2, "Planning," also covers more on goal setting. Money Management coverage in the new "Planning" chapter (2) helps students get started in planning their finances right from the start. Discovery and Intention Journal Entry System asks students to explain the whys, whats, and hows in their writing, and offers instructors a more specific and measurable form of journal writing than
