Back to School: Survival Strategies for Adult Students.
by Frank Joe Bruno
In some ways, the adult returning to college will find
the experience much easier than it would have been in
his or her youth, to the extent that the "mature student"
will wonder why everyone doesn't wait till adolescence
is long gone before engaging with lectures and majors
and essays and exams. But while the distractions of
youth may be fewer, your certainty about the goal greater
and pursuit of it more dedicated, there are complications
to adult education, and every bit of preparation helps.
This book is packed with advice and success strategies
for the returning student, including how to strengthen
study habits and prepare for exams, sharpen writing
and public speaking skills, and juggle responsibilities
of family, job, and school.
