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 is used as a text in student success courses, first-year experience programs, and inward-looking courses that promote student growth and self-awareness. ON COURSE demonstrates the choices that successful students make. A self-assessment tool at the beginning of the text helps students to identify behaviors and beliefs they may wish to change in order to achieve more of their potential in college and in life. Students have an opportunity to revisit their self-assessment at the conclusion of the text. Written in a positive, motivational style, ON COURSE empowers students with the tools they need to take charge of their success in college and in life. Downing's distinctive guided journal entries help students 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 students excel in all of their college courses. Students are encouraged by hearing from their peers through a unique feature called One Student's Story, which highlights the implementation of the text's strategies.

I have never before seen in my life such a useless crock of horseshit in print. This, at the time of my review, is now in its seventh edition, and is in its entirety a feel-good success seminar in text format.
