Tips for College Success by Nigel the Fox

Tips for College Success by Nigel the Fox is a booklet published by CAST which includes tips on how to succeed in college.  It is a fun, cartoon-like way to get some valuable tips for students transitioning to college. There are 12 tips from meeting the professor before class starts to using technology such as audiobooks, PDF's, iPad, iPhone,and MacBook. Each tip provides an explanation, strategies for use, and links to resources when appropriate. Each tip also has a link to a "student" who explains how he uses the tip, plus there is a button that speaks for the student as well as "textHelp" that reads the entire page of text. This is a great resource for a student transitioning to college, but equally appropriate to help a high school student develop good self-advocacy skills. http://bookbuilder.cast.org/view.php?op=view&book=63445&page=2
