Collins, Terence; Romano, John L.
This booklet on study skills for entering college students provides direction on the following topics: using time, textbooks, notetaking, exams, reports and essays, libraries, and getting help. Questions the student should consider about scheduling time and sample daily/weekly/quarterly schedules are included. Textbook reading should consist of surveying, questioning, reading, reciting, and reviewing the material. Listening and recording notes in a usable way and academic and psychological preparation for tests are discussed. The most common types of test questions are discussed, including multiple choice, true-false, matching, computational or numerical, short answer, and essay. Basic reference materials in the library, the card catalog, periodical indexes, and newspaper indexes are described, and the use of quotes and footnotes in papers is discussed. Sources of help for General College students at the University of Minnesota are the reading and writing skills center, mathmatics skills center, counseling and student development, and HELP center.
