Synopsis

Roadways to Success by James C. Williamson, Debra A. McCandrew, Charles T., Sr., Ed.D. Muse

A student-centered book with an integrated case study to meet the needs of new-to-campus students or those returning to school after an absence. Roadways to Success presents relevant material that aids students in learning concepts and skills they need, when they need them. All activities have a clear purpose that support each concept presented. Case studies and self-assessment begin each chapter. Incentives are built in to encourage students to move forward with a positive attitude. Now includes the interview process with advice and prescriptive direction from top level, experienced recruiters from different businesses and industries. Educates students on the world of social media (benefits, problems, and use of) for effective applications to the educational environment. Also illustrates how math affects every aspect of our lives recognizing that students are often intimidated by math despite its impact on every aspect of our success. Chapters are the right length to present specific concepts, provide affective exercises, activities, and threaded features that will enhance the college experience. There is no busywork - all charts, tables, and exercises are meaningful.

Reviews

The text gives many case studies that enable the student to work through worst case scenarios and then fit the possible solutions into their own life. They often comment that the reading makes them self aware and puts things into perspective for them. -- Deena Wickliffe, Ivy Tech Community College
