How to Succeed at a Two-Year College

I've combined my passion for writing with my desire to help students at colleges like the one where I teach be as successful as they can. I've written this brief book to answer the questions I know many students, including those who are First Time in College (FTIC) have.

Do you have questions about college? What kind of college to attend, how to pay for it, what to study and how to prepare for a career?

How to Succeed at a Two-Year College answers those questions, and more. If you are a high school student (or the parent of one), a veteran, a returning student, or just curious about what a two-year college can offer, this is the book for you.
Too many college websites are confusing, requiring a lot of hunting to find the answers to simple questions. How to Succeed at a Two-Year College brings together all the information you need in a simple, easy-to-read format. Topics include:
  • What is a two year college?
  • Navigating financial aid
  • How to prepare for college
  • What kind of degrees are typically offered?
  • Credit for prior learning
  • Online courses
  • How to excel in classes
  • Academic Success and Career Centers
Neil S. Plakcy is a tenured professor of English at Broward College, one of the country's largest and most renowned two-year colleges. Using examples from his fourteen years as an educator, and from Broward's best policies, he provides the pathway to success for students who may be the first in their family to go to college, or otherwise lack the advising and resources to get answers to their most pressing questions.

The e-book is available from Amazon and other e-book vendors. Print and audio versions coming soon. There is also a special edition just for Broward College students, available here from Amazon.
