"This book covers the material and provides the exercises in such a way that students can value the book by actively participating in it rather than just using it as a reading text."
"This book could be the difference between success and failure."
"I love the beginning of the chapters that share the images of college success."
"The exercises for the students in each chapter were ideal. I liked the self-assessments, "Where Are You?" exercises, "Where Are You Now?" exercises and the exercises in the learning portfolio."
