The first book on the market written with the first-time community college student in mind, this text provides basic information as well as encouragement for the non-traditional student–it shows that going to college and balancing work and family can be accomplished without compromising students’ success. It covers a range of topics from making the transition into college culture, to practicing active learning and study skills, and preparing for a degree and a career. Each chapter, including the return of the time and energy management chapter, explores a major “college survival” topic in depth and provides a wealth of information for anyone who has stepped onto campus for the first time, all in a straightforward, easy-to-read format.
