How do you successfully advise the unsuccessful/withdrawing/flunking student? This is an area about which a teaching faculty member rarely finds articles. But it is truly an important area for the teaching faculty member to be able to interact with students. The first suggestion to make is to not totally abandon the Computer Science field; the worst thing to do is quit college. If a student has managed to complete more than two classes in the computer science major then they have some ability that they should not ignore in their effort to pursue a university education and a career. This paper covers the general topics that should be discussed with an unsuccessful student.
