ON COURSE: STRATEGIES FOR CREATING SUCCESS IN COLLEGE AND IN LIFE presents a hands-on approach to learning essential life and study skills. Now in its 6th edition, ON COURSE is used as a book in user success courses, first-year experience programs, and inward-looking courses that promote user growth and self-awareness. ON COURSE demonstrates the choices that successful users make. A self-assessment tool at the beginning of the book helps users to identify behaviors and beliefs they may wish to change in order to achieve more of their potential in college and in life. Users have an opportunity to revisit their self-assessment at the conclusion of the book. Written in a positive, motivational style, ON COURSE empowers users with the tools they need to take charge of their success in college and in life. Downing’s distinctive guided journal entries help users develop essential life skills by encouraging exploration of personal responsibility, self-motivation, interdependence, and self-esteem. Extensive coverage of study skills—reading, note taking, memory and test taking—provided in the Wise Choices in College” sections helps users excel in all of their college courses.
