The seven titles deal with the following topics: (1) the prediction of reading comprehension from critical thinking skills, cognitive thinking skills, and meaning vocabulary with college freshmen; (2) the effects of instruction in comprehension strategies on reading skills of academically underprepared community college students; (3) reading rate and comprehension for readers untrained and trained in rapid reading; (4) reading improvement programs in Wisconsin business and industry; (5) the relationships between reading and personality and WAIS scales at an open door community college; (6) the relationship of cognitive development, cognitive style, and reading ability with academic success of community college students enrolled in a human anatomy and physiology course; and (7) the effects of transformational sentence combining on the reading comprehension of college students.
