Understanding what to expect from the first day on the job and how to successfully navigate the workplace environment can help ease a challenging transition. Learning the Ropes, Third Edition tackles the difficult subject of how to fit into a new context, whether at work or at school. The awkward period of figuring out how things work and what is expected of someone in a new situation is less difficult with some know-how.

True-or-false quizzes and an appendix with helpful Web sites are new additions to this authoritative book.
