100% STUDENT SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, promotes student achievement by addressing practical student tasks such as note-taking and reading strategies, while encouraging students to develop skills like critical thinking, goal-setting, time management, and balancing life responsibilities with school-all skills that will serve them well beyond college. The third edition of 100% STUDENT SUCCESS retains important features such as self-assessment questions and Apply It! exercises, and now features earlier presentation of communication skills, more on avoiding plagiarism, and the pluses and minuses of using social media.
