A valuable resource for the serious student and for those who aspire to be serious students. I'll be recommending The College Success Book to my clients. . . . -- Dennis Heitzmann, Center for Counseling and Psychological Services, Pennsylvania State University

The College Success Book: A Whole-student Approach To Academic Excellence takes an active approach that emphasizes the mechanics of learning and encourages students to take personal control over all aspects of the learning process. The "whole student" approach is unique to study skills instruction, and the holistic, wellness approach to academic success incorporates knowledge of the impact of factors such as diet, stress control, exercise, and sleep upon learning outcomes. The College Success Book provides students with a wide array of skills that will lead to success in college and beyond. use of The College Success Book will enable students to increase productive skills and attitudes that can effectively guide them through the "information over-load" that is characteristic of most college settings. -- Midwest Book Review
