For Introduction to College, College Survival, and College Seminar courses. The Community College Experience P.L.U.S. edition helps students: Prepare. Link. Understand. Support. This book is written with the community college student in mind, the non-traditional student who needs basic information, as well as encouragement that going to college and balancing work and family can be accomplished. It also provides first-generation students with an understanding of college's culture and function. Their success will hinge on whether or not they are adequately prepared for the unique challenges that they will face. This book covers a range of topics that will give the first-time community college student the advantage: from examining why a student has enrolled in college, to forging meaningful relationships while in college, to how to write, make presentations, and study effectively, to what a student will do after attending a community college. Different from the version of the book published in 2005, this expanded edition offers more exercises at the end of the chapters so that students can spend time reflecting and researching the ideas that are presented.More information has been added about health issues and relationships so that students are better prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally to make the commitment to complete a certificate or degree.
