Overview

This successful text shows students how to use study strategies by integrating their reading, writing, and listening skills. Through a balance of discussion and carefully sequenced exercises, Sotiriou coves basic college survival skills and progresses to specific strategies for studying, reading, note taking, and exam taking.
Integrating College Study Skills is more sophisticated than many books on the market because it doesn't look or read like a workbook. It delves deeper into the understanding and application of basic learning strategies, more so than other study skills books, by guiding the student to use reasoning when studying.
