A Series of 15 Free One-Page Study Tips Helps Students Study Better.
Hodges, Daniel L.
For about three years, Lane Community College has made 15 one-page "Study Tips" available to students for free. Designed for students who would not be likely to read a booklet on study methods or attend a full course, the "Study Tips" are displayed in the Counseling Department, Study Skills Center, and Multi-Cultural Center and are distributed by counselors, assessment personnel, and several instructors. Between 2000 to 3000 copies of the "Study Tips" are distributed each year. The "Study Tips" series is appended to this brief discussion of their format and use. Titles are: (1) "How to Use Some Facts about Your Brain in Order to Study Better"; (2) "Memory Tricks Can Make School Work Easier"; (3) "How to Use Categories and Have a Better Memory"; (4) "How to Learn Skills Faster"; (5) "Emergency Studying"; (6) "How to Create a Positive Mental Attitude and Learn More When You Study"; (7) "How to Relax So You Can Study Better"; (8) "How to Teach Yourself New Things: The MISTARS Method"; (9) "What Most Instructors Expect Their Students to Do"; (10) "What to Do When You Don't Understand What You Are Reading"; (11) "How to Take Objective Tests to Get the Highest Score Possible"; (12) "Personal Failure, Worry, and Self-Acceptance"; (13) "How to Plan Your Time So That You Can Get Your Homework Done"; (14) "How Students Succeed in College--Despite Having Reading Skills That Are Below Average"; and (15) "What is Intelligence?
