This proven student success author team has updated its study skills text to extend the depth of core coverage while increasing the relevance and usefulness of the material. In addition to a comprehensive treatment of study skills, Keys to College Studying integrates a definitive theme of active thinking throughout the text and exercises. This theme builds will, skill, and self-management abilities — i.e., students’ ability to develop skills, strengthen the will to learn, and monitor and manage their progress. This theme enhances student involvement, understanding, and motivation. End-of-chapter exercises, as well as new in-chapter exercises, link to and reinforce the theme. Study skills and developing active thinking skills are the main focus of this book. Traditional study skills covered include: improving reading comprehension, speed, and vocabulary, mastering the content of texts and literature, understanding visual aids, becoming a better listener and improving memory, taking effective notes, mastering test-taking techniques, becoming comfortable with math, science, and technology, managing time and setting goals, and managing stress. The coverage of vocabulary is superior. The book also includes these critical topics not often found in other study skills books: lifelong learning, learning styles and self-awareness, critical thinking, mastering research skills, and writing effectively. For anyone interested in developing strong Study Skills or taking an academically-oriented Student Success course.
