"I like the fact that this text is written with the community college student in mind. Other texts seem to ignore how different the freshman year experience is at the community college as compared to a traditional residential university. I also like the practical counsel offered in various sections of each chapter. These are very real, very honest and extremely engaging to the intended audience."Larry Saffioti, Tidewater Community College "I found the information in the text to be very easy to read and practical which always makes these topics more meaningful to students. The use of profiles and critical thinking exercises allows students to be able to apply themselves to a given situation and think about how to handle it the best way possible…It is one thing to start college but it is another to know why you are even doing it and I believe this is a strength of the text."James Mendoza, Tacoma Community College Additional Support - in and out of the classroom… The Community College Experience 2ehas its own Companion Website ( www.prenhall.com/baldwin ) designed to help students review the text material.
