It’s back to school time for most students, so I thought I’d share this great site about study skills. Honing your study skills can improve your grades and help you retain material longer.
Navigation is divided into three sections:
General Study Skills Guides-this section deals with general study skill like: effective listening, improving your note taking, reading comprehension, and dealing with test anxiety to just name a few.
Test Taking Study Skills Guides-this section focuses specifically on taking tests. It offers students different strategies to use on different types of tests (true/false, multiple choice, essay, oral, etc.) and even some tips for when they take the ACT test.
Study Skills Resources by Subject-this section offers resources based on what subject the student is studying for. The subjects provided are: Accounting, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Education, English, Engineering, History, Law, Math, Physics, Political Science, and Psychology.
I have personally used their note taking tips to help refine what I was already doing and I can tell you that it has helped me a lot. So I really wanted to share this resource with other students so that they can benefit from these tips. Pass this one around to anyone you know who is attending school!
