I downloadd this book to read on my own instead of taking the college's course on this subject, so that the college credit would still be available for another elective and so that I wouldn't be spending expensive tuition for the course.
I don't know whether my school uses this textbook or not, but it's a very valuable resource to help students prepare for college, not only mentally but also physically, financially, and emotionally. I am a non-traditional college student who graduated high school over 20 years ago, and this book is useful not only for the traditional student but students like myself.
A lot of these types of books "assume" the reader is transitioning directly from high school to college but this book does not.
I look forward to letting my 2 high school kids read this book before they go to college, whether they go at age 18 or The book is very reader friendly, with lots of color photos and text laid out in a way that is interesting and engaging. Topics covered include: There are also sections on future planning, major selection, handling stress, math anxiety, money management, and taking care of your physical health. This book is extremely informative, worth the kindle price, and highly suggested to get the most out of your college experience and achieve success in college, not only if you are taking a class for which this book is required but also, and especially, for students who are not taking or do not have access to such a class.
I love the fact there is an option for e-books with some of my text books! The only down side is that I can't print off any of the pages that I have been about to find, that is The one great thing about it is that I can download the site app for books to any device and have it with me where ever I go! I can have it on my laptop or iPhone if I need it for anything! The affordability of it is great as well! Paperback Verified download. What I liked most about the book is very self explanatory and fits well for the class.
The book is very informative. The book arrived ahead of schedule. Not that useful, had to get it for a class and there is some good advice, but the activities are a bit tedious. Brand new. The book was in perfect condition i will rate it from 1 to 10 it will definitely be a I was really happy with the Hard copy of the 'book.
It was FREE that's if you are a college student. This apply with you College email. Loved it Thanks. Best experience yet.
I used this book for a college course. It came wrapped brand new and was a great price! But they can fruitfully be used together, and each of them is best used with an awareness of the other one as supplementing some of its own weaknesses.
Note: You will probably need to spend some time on all this.
Semiotic approaches part of qualitative methods have been hugely qualified and debated in recent years. But culturally formed habits of perception ignore this, perhaps because of the focus on the verbal message, the clouded skies, and the powerful combination of all three.
See Chapter This is especially true in comment on fashion and politics. You may find you already know more about semiotic approaches than you at first imagine. But for semiotic and structuralist approaches, used in the study of media and culture, a text can be anything which is to be investigated — a haircut, hip-hop lyrics, a dance, a film.
Barthes emphasised that narrative texts were not one thing, but a weaving together of different strands and processes. It is the very opposite of the original sense of something with a single, sacred meaning which is to be carefully discovered. Intertextuality: the variety of ways in which media and other texts interact with each other, rather than being unique or distinct.
Semiotics is a theory of signs, and how they work to produce meanings, or the study of how things come to have significance. Structuralism: an approach to critical analysis which emphasises universal structures underlying the surface differences and apparent randomness of cultures, stories, media texts, etc. When the media were first seriously studied, in the late s, existing methods from literary, social science and art criticism were routinely applied to them.
But it soon became clear that simply to discuss a film or television programme by such methods was not enough.
For whom? Experienced by whom? At this same time semiotics and accompanying theories from structuralism were brought into play. They asked radical questions about how meanings are constructed in and by different languages and cultures. Some, though not all, developed these theories to insist that because meanings are constructed by humans, they can be changed, in progressive ways, by them.
Semiotics is defined as the study of signs, or of the social production of meanings and pleasures by sign systems, or the study of how things come to have significance. It draws largely on the work of the linguist Saussure, the logician Peirce and the literary theorist Barthes. Saussure argued that a sign consists of a physical signifier gesture, words on the page, music and an immaterial signified the idea associated with this gesture, words, etc.
He was a linguist, and thus mostly interested in language signs. Any pronounceable combination of letters could have been originally decided on as is clear if you know a language other than English.
