Studying to Learn.
Air Univ., Maxwell AFB, AL.
This booklet was prepared in response to a demand from Air Force Officers returning to academic study after being out of school for several years. Its main purpose is to help returning veterans learn how to study. The guide is divided into three sections: (1) the "Reconnaissance-Read-Recall" (RRR) system of study, (2) concepts in "How We Learn," (3) and "Study Aids." The RRR system for study suggests that; (1) study time should be divided between reading and reflected thinking; (2) study time should be planned and performed systematically; and (3) RRR method is not time consuming, but provides an excellent avenue for learning. Further, the authors conclude that learning requires (1) a will to learn, (2) action, (3) attention, (4) organization, (5) understanding, and (6) review. Finally, under "study aids" the authors describe the proper techniques for underlining, note-taking, outlining, and listening. A step-by-step guide is provided in all three sections. (RK)
