About

Overview

100% STUDENT SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, promotes student achievement by addressing the practical student tasks such as note-taking and reading strategies, while encouraging students to develop skills like self-reflection, lifelong learning, financial management, and balancing life responsibilities with school--all skills that will serve them well beyond college. The second edition of 100% STUDENT SUCCESS will provide students with a strong foundation for self-reflection and application of concepts in the book, supported by moving the focus on motivation to Chapter 2, "Human Behavior." The chapter presents theories of motivation and need satisfaction. The second edition expands on these theories by applying them more specifically to learning and success in college. Subsequent chapters apply these theories to specific student success topics.

Features and Benefits

  • "Learning Objectives," like those provided on course syllabi, provide students with an outline of what they should be learning from the chapter.
  • "Case In Point Scenarios," found at the beginning of each chapter, are case studies that demonstrate the application of chapter concepts to the real world.
  • "Critical Thinking Questions" challenge students to examine ideas and thoughtfully apply concepts presented in the text.
  • At the end of each chapter, "Apply It!" activities (formerly named Learning Activities) help students apply the concepts discussed throughout the chapter in practical situations.
