ON COURSE: STRATEGIES FOR CREATING SUCCESS IN COLLEGE AND IN LIFE presents a hands-on approach to learning essential life and study skills. Now in its 6th edition, ON COURSE demonstrates the choices that successful students make. A self-assessment tool at the beginning of the text helps you to identify behaviors and beliefs you may wish to change in order to achieve more of your potential in college and in life. You have an opportunity to revisit your self-assessment at the conclusion of the text. Written in a positive, motivational style, ON COURSE empowers you with the tools you need to take charge of your success in college and in life. Downing’s distinctive guided journal entries help you develop essential life skills by encouraging exploration of personal responsibility, self-motivation, interdependence, and self-esteem. Extensive coverage of study skills—reading, note taking, memory and test taking—provided in the “Wise Choices in College” sections helps you excel in all of your college courses.
