Summary

Striving for Excellence in College does what no other learning skills book does: it treats academic excellence as attainable by most students and trusts students' capacity to be better learners than is ordinarily assumed possible. This text merges critical thinking and active learning in an understandable partnership and includes over fifty tips that previously only the best students knew. Learning requires more than skills - the student's emotional makeup and the class environment are at least as important for learning excellence. Browne and Keeley, authors of Asking the Right Questions, bring their unusually readable writing style to this text that will help students become more active learners and better critical thinkers.
