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 materi...show moreal 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.
Questions in the Margins supply hundreds of examples of how main ideas can be used to formulate questions. This feature appeals to various learning styles and encourages students to reflect and review content they've read.
New! It's Your Q icons. In the Ninth Edition, some Questions in the Margins in later chapters have been deliberately eliminated and replaced with icons. When students see these icons, they know to develop their own question, record it in the margin, and use it to review the text. This practice helps students learn to formulate these questions for themselves in subsequent academic courses.
Trim Size: How to Study in College offers a unique trim size with large margins that provide students with ample space to use the Q System.
New! Practicing the Q System, available online, offers excerpts from a variety of disciplines (including topics in History, Critical Thinking, Leadership, Management, and English) where students can practice creating questions to write in the margins.
New! A chapter on critical thinking, "Zeroing in on Information That's Valuable," helps students wade through the sheer volume of information available today while determining what's relevant, important, and reliable.
New! A chapter on learning styles, "Learning Through Multiple Channels," provides students with strategies for understanding their own learning styles and suggestions on how to "switch channels" from one style to another in order to pick up information more readily and clearly.
New! A chapter on discussions, "Getting the Most Out of Discussions," helps students discover how to discuss topics both in person and online and offers strategies on what they should aim to take away from these valuable interactions.
New! Coverage of writing research papers, formerly available as a supplement, has been thoroughly updated and added into the text as Chapter 14.
The PACE system for Reading Improvement presents a systematic approach to improving reading that counteracts the claims of speed reading.
The Word History System and the Words in Context sections offer students two different ways to learn and retain new vocabulary. The Word History system appears at the end of each chapter and illustrates words through pictures. The Words in Context sections dissect the remarks of modern thinkers and leaders to put words in context and to give them added relevance for students.
