What is this Student Success Guide (SSG) print supplement? The SSG helps students understand the relevance of the material, by relating chapter content to everyday life with a thought-provoking question. Students are able to retain material through use of the Chapter Study Guides, which help solidify their understanding of the material presented. The SSG assists in the implementation of course goals, via content that is organized into general goals that students are expected to have for the course. Additionally, it increases performance on tests and quizzes by pointing students to content/resources (in the print book and on the CourseMate) that assist with learning key items, studying important concepts, and reviewing essential material. Lastly, the SSG keeps students current with technology by presenting ways for them to learn about the latest advances, changes, trends, breakthroughs, and products.
