I love the On Course book but have felt that the student's need for enhanced study skills was missing. I would now teach the class as Skip had originated the text but show students how their motivation and responsibility ties in with the additional study skills portion

I love the On Course book but have felt that the student's need for enhanced study skills was missing. I would now teach the class as Skip had originated the text but show students how their motivation and responsibility ties in with the additional study skills portion. I am thrilled with the CORE Learning Process and integration into the "Wise Choices" sections.

Bought this book because it is a textbook I needed, and the book did not come with the cd or the access code which has been extremely frustrating. To purchase a separate access code now costs half of what the textbook costs.

This book is designed for college students to learn self-motivation and time management, but it can apply to anyone trying to achieve a goal. It is the best book of its type I have found. The Study Skills (blue pages) sections are absolutely wonderful. I saw it in a tutoring center at a local college and immediately bought one for my grandson. It includes positive motivation quotes, student stories, and workable approaches to identifying challenges, choosing options, and progressing toward solutions.

Great resource for any student, middle school and beyond, who wants direction and improved study skills, or needs help with goal setting, time management, realizing the benefits of self-evaluation in general. I bought this to use with teens, but I personally have gained a lot by reading and applying some of the ideas and strategies laid out in the book. Highly recommended for anyone thinking about going to college or technical school, or trying to help their high schooler finish and earn their diploma.

This book was required for a college psychology course and it was very eye opening. I loved thinking from a different perspective and appreciated the stories within the book. It was very educational and I highly recommend everyone to read this book.

Overall, I feel that this book is filled with a lot of detailed information intended to help the beginning college student, and perhaps others, stay “on course”. There is also an overall structure in various ways and from a variety of perspectives to help people direct their lives. The intent is to help the student see alternatives, including alternative points of view, that would be helpful for her or him. I think that Prof. Downing has done an excellent job and that students who take the time to engage with this material will benefit. We all sometimes face difficult transitions, and the transition to adulthood, much of which is captured in the rituals and culture of higher education, is one of the most difficult transitions we humans face. I read this book for some insights to help students I encounter, but I also thought that, I myself, have benefitted a little from reading the book. I think Prof. Downing provides a great deal of help to pass classes, and to graduate, and to organize one’s thinking toward adult life, adult responsibilities and adult motivations. There is a complete focus on finding a mentality for growth and creativity, and for balance in one’s life. Most of life we cannot control, and our actions are in a context of risk, ambiguity and uncertainty. But we do have control over many aspects of our inner lives, our reactions, and our recognition of the potential consequences of our own actions. Prof. Downing is very concerned with this, and with getting us to see that there are often positive, personal choices that we can make to avoid feeling like a victim of circumstances. I strongly recommend this book to awaken oneself to a growth mindset, that amounts to much more than just getting good grades or graduating (although there is ample material in the book that addresses this). I think we can all feel lost in our lives, even when we have achieved a fair measure of success, so a book to stay “on course” can be helpful to a larger audience than just students.

I needed this book for a class. There's nothing special about the text, except it challenged some my "Victim" complex at the time..

New quality, arrived fast, book offers ways to improve study and organizational skills while identifying weaknesses in one self and others. Offers advice and exercises on strengthening those weaknesses and how to identify and handle others and situations that hinder your personal growth and success.
I had no motivation so I bought this book. I didn't get anything done or care about finishing college.

This book is structured to nurture and challenge every aspects of your life. (Inner Defender)
It tackles procrastination and what kinds there are. (Importance vs Urgency)

Although it may seem like a book of common sense, it is useful to have a chart provided for you to follow and diagrams to illustrate how to organize your life.

I still don't have motivation but this book helped me organize my life in at least finishing things. I will be graduating this year!
