For courses in freshman orientation or study skills, for current or potential majors in science, engineering, computers, or mathematics. Proficiency in the sciences and an understanding of technological advances has become a must for students to excel, not only in the classroom but also in their careers. Based on the successful Keys to Success, this is the only text available for science majors that focuses on the particular needs of science students and actually increases their chances for success both in college and on the job market. The authors discuss how to study in the sciences-how science texts differ from other texts and how to approach them, understanding inquiry-based learning, and conducting research. The text explores all aspects of careers in science, from career planning and preparation to networking. It includes all chapter content from the popular Keys to Success brief edition but tailors each chapter to science majors, and includes additional chapters that focus on careers and lab work.
