Noel, Nora E.; Cohen, Dale J.
Journal of Drug Education, v27 n4 p363-72 1997
To assess the contribution of situational factors to alcohol use during a naturally occurring high-stress time, 73 undergraduate students were studied. Contrary to the prediction of a simple tension-reduction model, results showed that students preferred to address heightened anxiety by studying to pass exams. Programmatic implications are discussed. (EMK)
