Summary

This best-selling text has helped over a million students transform adequate work into academic success. The Ninth Edition maintains the straightforward and traditional academic format that have made it the leading study skills text in the market. 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 life skills. Questions in the Margin, introduced in the previous edition and based on the Cornell Note Taking System, places key questions about content in the margins of the text to provide students with a means for reviewing and reciting the book's main ideas. Students then use this concept--the Q-System--to formulate their own questions. The Ninth Edition has been revised to include fewer questions in later chapters to encourage students to practice the Q System and provide their own questions so that they can learn to apply these concepts in subsequent academic courses. Marginal "It's Your Q" icons alert students when they should develop a question.
