Editorial Reviews


"Of primary importance is for students to begin to understand their responsibilities in the learning environment. The revision continues to emphasize a student-centered approach to change in college." -- Bennie Perdue, Miami Dade Community College "On Persist: "I especially like the subtitle 'Things You Need to Know About College, But Might Never Ask' because it tags the new student's dilemma: they don't know what they don't know." -- Marie Zander, New York Institute of Technology "... the new exercises require the students to use critical thinking skills that I believe are essential to the academic success of every college student..." -- Betty Fortune, Houston Community College "... the section which asks students to reflect on the question of what their college expects of them ... provides clarity to students to begin to take responsibility for their education and look at the importance of taking an active role in their education." -- Joan O'Connor, New York Institute of Technology --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

To Our Students

Education is not preparation for life, education is

life itself.
– John Dewey, educator

Cornerstone was born out of our desire to help new college students develop the skills that would enable them to be successful in college. Seldom will you read a textbook as honest and straightforward as we have tried to make this one. The words that you read and the activities provided in this worktext have not come easily to us. They are the result of our collective experiences over our many years of teaching and administration in higher education. We hope our words will touch you deeply and provide you insight that will enable you to make it to graduation and beyond.

We hope that our words will give you peace as well as cause you some discomfort; teach you and challenge you; hold you and let you go. It is also our hope that you will approach these activities with new eyes; yours is a different world now. To experience that world, you'll need to be open and willing to participate. Without your participation, the power of this worktext is lost. With your participation, it holds unlimited possibilities for bringing change, improving skills, and setting you off on a lifetime of success.

Within the pages of this worktext you will find many activities, such as At This Moment, which will help you explore where you are and where you are going. Each chapter includes a feature called An Insider's View, stories from students across the United States discussing issues found within the chapter. You will also find a new feature, From the World of Work, essays from professionals in a variety of careers.

You will notice that the pages of Cornerstone are filled with cartoons. They are there for your enjoyment and to add a little comic relief (many of them are a howl!). The cartoons also tell a story. Get to know Cliff, Miho, Vasquez, Kate, and the others. Watch how they cope with their college experiences, how they're changed by them, and how they grow from them.

We have added a couple of important new topics. There are three entirely new chapters, Chapter 3, How are You Smart? A Personal Journey into Multiple Intelligences, Learning Styles, and Personality Typing, Chapter 4, Think before You Leap: Using Critical Thinking Skills in College and Life, and Chapter 10, Strategies for Success: A Guide to Writing and Public Speaking.

There is a double entry journal designed to accompany this text (at no extra charge), which , your instructor may opt to order with the text for this course. When used properly, this journal can be a valuable communication tool between you, your peers, and your instructor. Take your time to reflect honestly and openly on the questions asked. Only through your own soul-searching and self-revelation will the features of this book help you improve your skills as a college student and assist you in becoming a productive citizen.

We wish you luck in building your future on the cornerstones that will carry you for the rest of your life.

Rhonda, Pat, and Robb --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Cornerstone is great material for my Strategies for Success class. I like the stories of real people that they list in the book, it has worked as a better illustration for me then most pictures. Greatly recommend this book even if you don't have a class you need this book for, but just a read as well.

The book was informational, was thought provoking and gave good tips on test taking. One of the topics enlists you to find your personality and test taking styles then how to build on that in the classroom (and outside) to your advantage. Very life applicational.
