OER Textbooks | College Skills

One of the most common complaints from faculty about using OER materials is that they don’t know how to find materials.  I’ve started to link resources and created a list of OER Textbooks organized by academic discipline. 

Success in College

This textbook is housed on the oddly named Lardbucket.org and was developed by a professional publishing company.

Fundamentals of Personal Finance

This text by Adam McKee is designed to teach the basics of personal money management to students who plan to have a career in the “helping professions.”  It is suitable for teachers, criminal justice professionals, social workers, nurses, and so forth.  It is not designed as a business text and does not cover anything on business or corporate finance.  Suitable for a standalone course or as a supplement to a “life skills” or a “college skills” course.   Available as HTML, eBook, and in print.
