"This book does a great job in leading students from teacher directed learners to autonomous learners. It promotes metacognitive thinking and a deeper understanding of how we learn. There are many good exercises that students find interesting. Every chapter is useful and supports students progression toward our learning outcomes. This book comes the closest to covering the outcomes determined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for this course." --Charles Hairgrove, Richland College "I find the research reviewed in the book to be of the highest quality and appropriate to the population using the text. Because I teach at a comprehensive research institution, the research presented in the book helps lend credibility to the text and the content. The topics which have research references such as neural development and the patterns of human development are stronger because they are presented from a research perspective. I teach a tough, skeptical population and thanks to this text the students do not criticize the text as previous textbooks were criticized." --Lisa Portwood, University of Oklahoma "The "Academic Transformation" textbook fulfills a need that we have to expose our freshmen to ideas and guidance about how they can more fully excel in college. Students may start the class thinking they know everything about how to be successful academically and yet they have not really learned about the things they will find in this textbook. The textbook helps us explore the 'depths' of academic success skills." --Brian Searcy, Northeastern State University (OK)Reseña del editor:
