Summary

The focus of this book is on academic adjustment for any first-year student; its theme is claiming an education and taking responsibility for one's own experience. It addresses both how attitude and personality traits affect achievement. Readers are pushed to consider how each skill set, perception, and attitude connects with and influences the other. Both challenging and accessible, "Foundations for Learning" doesn't talk down to readers by using simplified vocabulary, yet it is to the point and practical. Topics include the development of academic self-concept, planning and prioritizing assignments, developing cognitive and communication skills, and combining reading and note-taking for optimal performance. "Foundations for Learning" is an excellent resource for anyone who plans to further their career through continuing education, as well as others that need to improve their study skills.
