The Post-Secondary Learning Experience recognizes that student retention is directly relatable to student preparedness and that being a successful student involves much more than just acing tests and writing good term papers; it involves making the emotional and social transition to post-secondary life. Often setting out on their own for the first time, students must learn to manage stress, work, relationships, money, and schoolwork simultaneously. Hadad/Reed offers concrete strategies and coping mechanisms to help students successfully navigate through this tumultuous first year and provides them with the theoretical basis for learning and development so they can understand and modify techniques to better suit their individual needs.
