PRACTICING COLLEGE LEARNING STRATEGIES, Fifth Edition, combines practical application with learning strategies theory, and is an excellent motivational tool for teaching students how to learn. The textbook focuses on learning strategies that are supported by brain research and neuroscience, and helps instructors to instill confidence in students who may feel "stuck" in their academic progress.
PRACTICING COLLEGE LEARNING STRATEGIES includes ample exercises and the inclusion of a "Survival Kit" - a quick roadmap that provides an overview of keys to academic success to use in the first weeks of the semester. In addition, the structured activities and exercises guide students in the reflection process to make the information personal and useful and to provide practice opportunities. In the new edition, the author focuses on putting students in the driver's seat, teaching them how to use all of the tools that are at their disposal.

"Three top things we like: the student-focused conversation tone, the sequence of topics as they are delivered in the text, and the wealth of practical exercises for students to try out the skills information, especially the summaries, and What's your Advice."
"The three things I like most about this text are the BREATHE system and Survival Kit that do not appear in other similar texts, the presence of so much college-level content with a focus on learning about what learning is, and the conversational tone present in most chapters that invites students to carry on a dialogue with textbook material."
