Study skills are the techniques that successful students use in order to achieve their educational goals. Study skills include topics such as learning styles, organizing course materials, managing time, taking lecture notes, learning from textbooks, and performing well on tests and exams. Study behaviors are the actions that apply these skills to current academic assignments. Study Skills/Reading Center academic coaches use a variety of self-assessments and questionnaires to help students identify their strengths and challenges as learners, and to develop an action plan specific to current assignments. Students may drop-in or sign up for individual sessions to help them develop effective study skills. Click on the following links for more self-assessment and study strategies:
