My Road Map to Success in College
Several years ago while I was on active duty in the Navy, I started taking college classes: one here, another one there. But it was not until last year when I transferred off active duty to the reserves and began a new career that I started to really feel the pressure and desire to complete my degree.

Because of this, I can recall information quickly and effectively (The Center for New Discoveries in Learning, 2012). Study materials are very helpful to me. I like to take notes, and I find flashcards, charts, and data maps very useful...
