I haven't yet used this in any type of student success course, but just read and found it extremely helpful with several practical tips was Make It Stick by Brown, Roediger, and McDaniel.

Hi Barton,

I used Learning to Learn many years ago (15 or so).  It was a great resource if you followed it pretty closely, and that is they way it was intended. However it was less useful if you tried to "pick and choose"
content areas as the materials built on previous sections as you progressed through the text.

At the time I was using it, Marcia and her team would sort of "customize"
the text to fit your type of institution and student needs. I believe it was originally piloted at Boston College a private four year college with a strong athletic program.  My institution was a small public community college with a large "at risk" adult population.

I recall some mixed reviews from the students. Those willing to "buckle down" and proceed with the text and embedded tasks enjoyed the experience and benefited tremendously. Those who were looking to just get in, get what they needed, and get out, were far less successful, as the book really requires students to engage with it.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best,
Roberta
