This textbook by Gardner (National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, U. of South Carolina), Jewler (emeritus, mass communications and information studies, U. of South Carolina), and Barefoot (Policy Center on the First Year of College) is designed to be used in special courses offered by some colleges and universities designed to help first year students. Having taught such a course at the U. of South Carolina for some years, they cover the expected topics, including time management, learning strategies, connecting college and career goals, learning relationships with classmates and instructors, critical thinking, lecture participation and note-taking, reading and memory strategies, and test taking. They also cover issues of value development, campus diversity, and student health.
