Bookstore shelves are crowded with books offering advice to college students, yet--astonishingly--none of these books offer needed advice to the majority of college students in the United States ...those attending community college. Of the approximately 21 million full- and part-time college students, 11 million attend community colleges. The Community College Guide aims to help fill this huge gap. The authors of this book have decades of experience between them as professors and administrators in both two-year and four-year colleges, have written numerous books for a general readership and thoroughly understand what community college students need to know to succeed in their college careers. From how to apply to community colleges to what to expect from your courses, from the truth about what you'll pay to actual financial aid opportunities, The Community College Guide offers a wealth of information for the millions of American students who desire higher education at the community level.
