This best-selling text has helped over a million students transform adequate work into academic success. HOW TO STUDY IN COLLEGE provides you with a three-step path to study success: to be a successful student you need to build a strong study skills foundation and then gain, retain, and explain information. Based on widely tested educational and learning theories, HOW TO STUDY IN COLLEGE teaches study techniques such as visual thinking, active listening, concentration, note taking, and test taking, while also incorporating material on vocabulary building. Questions in the Margin, based on the Cornell Note Taking System, places key questions about content in the margins of the text to provide you with a means for reviewing and reciting the book’s main ideas. Then, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to use this concept—the Q-System—to formulate your own questions.
