Starting college as a high school graduate or as a returning adult can seem overwhelming, especially when you have family, social, and work obligations. Finding just the right balance is much easier if you have powerful study habits. Our 2-credit College Study Skills course will give you the advantage you need to succeed academically.
Getting good grades isn't easy if you aren't equipped to retain and apply the course materials you’re studying. You really need to know what you're doing. As Mark Twain once said: “It is wiser to find out than to suppose.”
Perseverance is the essential ingredient in developing keen study habits. Maybe Albert Einstein best summed up the art of studying when he said, “It is not that I’m so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.”
This course will show you how to take tests, navigate textbooks, schedule your time, concentrate with purpose, boost your memory power, listen like a pro, take orderly notes, analyze teaching and learning styles, leverage web-based campus resources, and develop concrete strategies for absorbing new content.
