According to recent market research, students are less academically engaged than ever before--a downward trend that has nothing to do with intellect, but everything to do with motivation, focus, and discipline. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, completely engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Thoroughly researched, the text covers the topics most important to student success and incorporates underlying themes of motivation and self-discipline throughout. Rather than talking down to students or speaking over their heads, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers--directly connecting with and drawing them into text discussions. Like FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, this concise version of the text addresses the needs of today's college students. In this smaller version, chapters on information literacy, writing, speaking skills, and wellness have been removed to concentrate on the core elements of the college success class. By holding to one good example for each chapter, Staley allows for the hands-on learning at which she excels, while creating a concise, student-focused option for the classroom.

This popular text combines theory, research, and applications to teach college students how to become more self-regulated learners. Study skills are treated as a serious academic course of study. Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve their study skills. The focus is on relevant information and features designed to help students to identify the components of academic learning that contribute to high achievement, to master and practice effective learning and study strategies, and then to complete self-regulation studies whereby they are taught a process for improving their academic behavior. A framework organized around six components related to academic success (motivation, methods of learning, time management, control of the physical and social environment, and monitoring performance) makes it easy for students to understand what they need to do to become more successful in the classroom. Pedagogical Features include Exercises; Follow-Up Activities; Student Reflections; Chapter-end Reviews ; Key Point; and a Glossary. New in the Fourth Edition: More emphasis on research findings; expanded discussion of motivation ; more emphasis on the impact of students’ use of social networking and technology; research about neuroscience in relationship to motivation and learning; new exercises, including web-based activities; Companion Website, including an Instructor's Manual
