Study skills are the techniques that successful students use to achieve educational goals. They include learning styles, organizing course materials, managing time, taking lecture notes, learning from textbooks, and performing well on tests and exams. Study behaviors apply these skills to current academic assignments.
Our Study Skills/Reading Center academic coaches use self-assessments and questionnaires to help you identify your strengths and challenges as learners and to develop plans specific to your current assignments.
