SYNOPSIS : According to recent market research, students are less academically engaged than ever before--a downward trend that has nothing to do with intellect, but everything to do with motivation, focus, and discipline. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, completely engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Thoroughly researched, the text covers the topics most important to student success and incorporates underlying themes of motivation and self-discipline throughout. Rather than talking down to students or speaking over their heads, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers--directly connecting with and drawing them into text discussions. Like FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, this concise version of the text addresses the needs of today’s college students. In this smaller version, reviewers and users recommended the author remove the chapters on writing and speaking, and wellness to concentrate on the core elements of the college success class. By holding to one good example for each chapter, Staley allows for the hands-on learning at which she excels, while creating a concise, student-focused option for the classroom.
