Adult learners face unique challenges—work, family, and the numerous responsibilities and obligations that they must juggle while pursuing a degree. With limited time and financial resources, adult learners need to know where and how to get help quickly and easily, and who to turn to when they have questions. The Adult Learner's Companion helps students navigate the challenges they encounter, using an accessible, user-friendly style that is both encouraging and motivating. Author Deborah Davis, a former adult student, provides a concise manual that helps adult learners navigate their way through the college experience, while providing the skills necessary for academic achievement. The Adult Learner's Companion takes into account knowledge gained through life experience and suggests how work-related experience can be applied in the classroom. Use the text in any Student Success or first-year seminar course with an adult learner or non-traditional student population.
