"College Success" is comprehensive and covers all the areas and ideas introduced in student success textbooks. The organization of the content in each chapter introduces the topics sequentially, which is conducive to exploring the various topics.


The strategies in the textbook are relevant to college success but can easily be updated to embed new techniques and theories. They can easily be implemented in the current text or added to the existing content.


I believe the book is accurate, but some of the chapter and section titles are a bit condescending, or at least my students may perceive them as such. For example, Chapter 5.1, "Are you ready for the big leagues" is obnoxious and my non-traditional students, beginning school after years in the military or jail or after being a parent, will be put off.


Some of the language could be a bit less academic in nature, since the book is introducing students, who may not be fully prepared for college, to higher education. But overall, I think the book does a good job.


I look forward to using this book in our Student Success/Orientation class. The information is very thorough and I really like how it is set up and all of the activities that are available to complete with students to deepen their understanding of the material. The only chapter I will probably not use in it's entirety is Chapter 10. I feel like there is information available from other sources that is more thorough, less biased and presented in a more sensitive manner for a more diverse audience.


The content of this textbook appears to be accurate even though some of the statistics are dated. I would like to see updated statistics and videos in a future publication of this book. Considering that this is a free resource for students, it has definitely more assets than draw backs and offers sound advice for new students who want to improve their skills and learn about topics that effect their lives. I will use it for the Summer 2021 semester.


Since this book covers timeless classic topics like time management, testing taking, and note taking, to name a few, the information doesn't go out of style. As I mentioned previously, the statistics and some videos are a bit outdated, but nevertheless interesting as long as you look that them in context with the previous decade. The activities outlined in the chapters are timeless and easy to adapt to changing times. I highly recommend this book for use first year college courses as it has a lot of offer students.


The interface is acceptable, but the images, charts and test blocks do not show up in WORD, which is problematic if the student needs to use the reader in WORD for their coursework. The PDF form is better, but the videos are not clickable. I just used part of words in the link to conduct an internet search of the videos. Some I found, and some I did not. Students might have difficulty navigating this. When I used the epub version with my Aidiko app on my Android phone to view the book the videos we not clickable either and some of the text is piled up and unreadable in some areas.


I've been using a Cengage "On Course" and I find this OER book to be just as comprehensive if not more. I especially like the end of chapter activities for students as they are deeply reflective.read more


While the text is a few years old, the information is still pertinent for student success. I would have liked to see more use of technology or web elements (videos, graphics, hyperlinks, etc.) to better engage different learning styles.


Each chapter encourages students to begin to assess their strengths in each category through interactive activities. In addition, there are student stories of success scattered through the text which helps make the text relatable and provide ongoing motivation for the reader.

College Success, is comprehensive to the subject matters pertaining to the topic. Chapters 1-3 and 9-124 certainly embody the student experience. This Open Source Textbook has great visuals, and assessment students can rate themselves to see where they are on their journey.. The text is set up in an easy, quick flow manner; really gets to the point. Chapter 7 is vital part of college experience to be successful


This is an easy read, with great information for college students to be successful in any college setting and not just for First Year students. Information was relevant and can be tailored to meet the course learning outcomes for each student body.


Although the book was published in 2015, I find the content to still be relevant to where students are today as they begin college. In regards to some of the self-assessments, I would have liked to have seen more citations to sources.


Overall this text provides the basic topics that can help all students be more successful in their college journey (and also in their professional journey after college). Because of the structure of the text it is easily adaptable to both online and f2f class formats... and allows me to "pick-and-choose" topics with a loss of consistency. I think this is a well rounded text for new college students.

This textbook presents topics that can help both traditional and nontraditional college students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. The textbook aims to help traditional college students adjust to their new college life by addressing topics such as new responsibilities, more independence, and a different learning environment from what they had experienced in high school. Students who are returning to school after several years may have to adapt to new class settings, such as online classes, along with working through the challenges that having a full-time job and a family present. This textbook offers information and advice that will help these students navigate through academic and personal issues they may experience while completing their degree.


Overall, I find the text to be relevant for both traditional and nontraditional students. The chapters on motivation, time management, and health, as well as the chapters on the academic skills of reading, note-taking, and writing will always be relevant for students aiming for success. The text includes a section on evaluating online materials (p. 187) that I find particularly relevant since students are increasingly citing material from the Internet in their papers.


The topics covered are generally current and relevant to today's incoming students. There are some anachronisms in the text that traditional age students will probably not recognize (the Big Mac commercial jingle, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, MySpace) and in the social media chapter there is a heavy emphasis on Facebook, which few 18-22 year olds seem to use nowadays. A resource link out to a 1983 handout on "bad presentations" makes reference to transparencies. Some links out to other out-of-book resources are broken and need correction or updating.


One strength of the book is the tone. The authors are realistic about the challenges that students may face, but present them in a supportive way and encourage students to have a positive attitude. Throughout the text, the authors remind students that the ultimate responsibility for college success belongs to them, and they give suggestions for how to adapt to less-than-ideal (or less-than-preferred) situations, like being in a large lecture class.

I found College Success to be a highly comprehensive book! It covers just about every area you can think of in regards to student success, and it does so in great depth on each and every topic. This would be a great text to use in a first year experience course-- I've been inspired to try out a lot of the included activities with my own first year seminar course. The book does not include an index, but it doesn't need one as the table of contents is detailed enough to help you find anything you need.


I found the information to be accurate and highly detailed. It properly reflects what it takes to be a successful college student and provides very detailed steps, information, and activities to help students throughout their college journey.


The contents of this book is highly relevant for college students. I think it would be most useful for freshmen, but it would certainly have benefit and merit as well for transfer students and non-traditional students.


This book was highly consistent! I really enjoyed that the chapters were framed the same way throughout the book. Each chapter begins with a "where are you now?" assessment for students to gauge where they stand before. The subsections of each chapter have their own learning objectives laid out at the beginning and key takeaways at the end of each subsection. At the end of each chatper, there is a chatper review, chapter takeaways, and a really neat "outside the book" section. This section refers students to additional materials, activities, etc. For example, one of the chapters had information in this section on how students could access career and personality inventories online. Lastly, each chapter concludes with the option for students to make an action list on how they'll apply what they've learned. These interactive components help to further engage students in the topics at hand by having them actually apply the takeaways to their lives.
