LEARNING SKILLS FOR COLLEGE AND LIFE is devoted to the self-development of learning skills. Students learn how to deal with psychological stumbling blocks, to cope with their ambivalence and anxiety about learning skills, to solve problems, to structure the environment to encourage desired behavior, to take small steps, and to get feedback on their progress. It is easy to tell first-year students what to change but it is challenging to explain how to change. David Watson meets this challenge. Speaking more as a mentor than an academician, Watson shows the reader how to carry out self-change projects to build new skills.
