Summary

Designed for incoming college freshmen who require additional preparation in reading, writing, communication, and study skills, this interactive book is a compendium of research-based advice and support. Instead of focusing on specific isolated skills, the authors take a life-long learning strategy approach to prepare at-risk students for success throughout their academic journey. This book moves students beyond the typical content found in traditional study skills books, by introducing them to a completely different approach that builds confidence, competence, and collaboration skills.

Takes a strong developmental approach to reading. Introduces a chapter on critical thinking and an expanded chapter on writing. Emphasizes the use of technology by adding reading selections and several activities that encourage students to use the Internet, e-mail, and other technological resources. Also evaluates the authoritativeness of Internet sources.
