Study Tools and Tips

Learning at the college level requires more time outside of class and a different approach to preparing and studying for your courses. To academically excel in college, you must evaluate your assumptions regarding your study strategies and habits. Strong students read before classes, review their course material/notes after every class, and study throughout the entire 15 weeks of the semester - not just before the exam. Review the resources below to learn how you can establish the college-level study strategies and habits needed to be successful.
