This book owes its origins to the open textbook College Success, written by Amy Baldwin.  Baldwin’s text aims to assist students’ transition into tertiary study.

College Success was then adapted by a team of academic and support staff at the University of Southern Queensland into Academic Success, which updated the book to provide an Australian perspective on the university experience, with content especially re-worked for Australian students.

This book in turn was the inspiration for the JCU publication Foundations of Academic Success, which is now in it’s Second Edition (the book you are currently reading), which was adapted to provide the support needed for James Cook University students entering bridging courses to prepare for studying at a degree level.
