Published Date: Jan 2, 2008


Are you interested in a well rounded approach to success, including both academic and personal fulfillment?  This working textbook and integrated CD engages students in assessing their current academic and workplace skills and developing specific action plans to ensure both academic and personal success. The first six chapters focus on how to do well “within yourself” or intrapersonal skills with topics such as stress management, positive attitude, time management, and goal setting. The middle chapters are devoted to academic skills including learning styles, critical/creative thinking, improving memory, and test taking.  The last four will deal with succeeding “within your program and beyond” and address communication, group interaction, team building, job-seeking, and leadership development.
