Women on Their Way Survival Kit: A Guide for the Woman Entering College.
Snider, Patricia A.; Valente, Patricia L.
Information and suggestions are presented in this guide to assist the re-entering female student in her adjustment to college. First, the guide looks at reasons for attending college and provides an overview of some of the barriers and problems to be overcome by a woman with a family who has been away from school for some time. Some of the following sections present a series of questions or factors for the re-entry student to consider when developing college plans on the basis of life goals; choosing a program of study; and managing home and family responsibilities. Other sections suggest steps to be taken in various college activities, such as budgeting time, developing a time schedule, establishing a study schedule, studying textbooks efficiently, and taking examinations. Some of the remaining sections discuss common concerns, such as the factors involved in academic success and meeting the needs of one's children, and others define and explain terms the student is likely to encounter in attending college, obtaining credit through non-traditional means, and taking examinations.
