The College Experience Compact provides students with the “unwritten rules” for college success to help them develop a plan to handle any situation. Student success doesn’t just happen. Instead, it is a combination of motivation, preparation, knowledge, persistence, and relationships.

Written to provide clear, concise, and practical information and concepts through a unique Feature set, students are prompted to review important college documents such as the syllabus, consider how to make good choices and maintain their personal integrity, and analyze their own situations and apply the content to new ones. Specifically, students will learn what college expectations are and how to exceed them. 0321886100 / 9780321886101 College Experience Compact, The Plus NEW MyStudentSuccessLab 2012 Update -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0321856767 / 9780321856760 NEW MyStudentSuccessLab 2012 Update -- Value Pack Access Card 0321856910 / 9780321856913 College Experience Compact, The
