Summary

The Houghton Mifflin Guide to Reading Textbooks highlights key skills and strategies required to successfully read college-level materials.

Four parts provide students with step-by-step guidance so reading becomes a logical, orderly process. Part One, Features of a Textbook, describes key elements that often appear in textbooks, such as definitions, visual aids, and charts. Next, students learn How to Read Successfully--including how to deal with distractions, manage time, take notes, and read critically. In Part Three, students apply what they have learned to 5 short selections from various disciplines, such as economics, psychology, and chemistry. Finally, students progress to three full-length textbook chapters from actual business, physical sciences and history texts. Pre-reading exercises allow students to preview each chapter, and Check Your Understanding exercises throughout ensure students remain on track.

  • An answer key at the end of the text provides answers to all of the exercises so that students can work independently.
