How to Study
This book states that "studying is an art that has to be learned, practiced, and refined." This is particularly true at the college level. Larger classroom settings, less one-on-one interaction with the teacher, and the lecture style of teaching are just some of the adjustments students may need to become accustomed to. This book recognizes that students prefer varying learning styles and that different study techniques may be necessary for different subjects. The suggested study techniques are just that, suggestions. You need not try all the methods covered, simply select the ones that apply to you. Recommended techniques on how to study are provided for lecture classes (such as history, sociology, psychology, etc) as well as science, math, and foreign language courses.
The complete title of this book is How to Study and Other Skills for Success in College. It is intended to provide insight on not only how to study at the college level but also focuses on other skills for college success. Detailed chapters cover such topics as getting the most out of the classroom experience, the art of reading, preparing for and taking examinations, writing papers, and getting help when needed. Information on what to expect at college in terms of living arrangements, academic demands, social pressures, parental pressures, and financial pressures is also included. Although this book was not specifically written with home schoolers in mind, the advice is pertinent for all who seek this level of education. Enh
