 Abstract

The Indispensable Guide to Undergraduate Research: Success in and Beyond College prepares students for undergraduate research in college. The text is designed to help students take full advantage of the academic resources and experiences that the university setting has to offer. The book is designed to appeal to all first and second year college students and as such, has a specific focus on the experiences of students who are underrepresented in the academy. The Indispensable Guide to Undergraduate Research: Success in and Beyond College provides students with detailed research-based tools that will prepare them for the social and academic transition from high school classes to college research.
