Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Focus on Community College Success] depicts the challenges of the community college student perfectly. Each chapter, while different, addresses the needs of the student, from his need to learn about self, college, or the working world, at large. This is an excellent book."

"This book is a comprehensive foundation for students who want to be successful and are learning to navigate the collegiate environment. It is geared towards the needs of the community college student."

The book is very easy to read and understand. I'm a non-traditional student and haven't been to school in a very very long time. Every section is clearly stated, and I enjoy the challenge focus-challenge cases I try to relate to them. and I like the follow-up questions.
