Study Skills

On these pages you will find my carefully considered opinion of a number of websites having content related to Study Skills. Each of these is rated according to the following criteria:

This site has exceptional content and should definitely be visited. It might be visually appealing or unusually comprehensive. Something about this site is special!!
*** This site has good content, is well constructed, and certainly is full of great ideas.
** This site would be worth a quick look. Most of the ideas here are better expressed on other sites.
* Errr... well... I'm including it for completeness. It might be under development or abandoned.

Remember when reading my ratings, many sites are not developed for "general consumption" and therefore may serve the needs of a particular audience very well. To receive a lower rating is no reflection on the developer or the host site. I'm just trying to point students in the direction of the most useful sites first.

Ah-Clem's Site Reviews
Site Content Rating
1 Improving Your Study Skills Grand Rapids Community College Provided by the Biology Learning Center. Specific problems are addressed such as (1) The subject matter is difficult to comprehend (2) My lecture notes are inadequate. (3) I can't remember what I read or what I hear in lecture. Countermeasures are suggested for each problem. ***
2 Study Skills and Learning Assistance Richland Community College This site has a really attractive layout. Major emphasis areas are: Mathematics Assistance, Reading Skills, Writing Skills, Public Speaking Skills, Test Taking, Time Management, Note Taking, Memorization Skills. Who could ask for anything more!
3 Study Skills Sam Houston State University Counseling Center Focuses on 5 major problems: Not studying enough, Wasting time when studying, Having trouble getting ready to study, Finding a good place for studying, and Using a good learning strategy. Each problem is discussed in detail. ***
4 Study Suggestions for General Chemistry Towson University Although specifically targeting students in chemistry, it should be a helpful resource for science, math, physics and engineering students. **
5 Study Skills Self-Help Information Virginia Tech Division of Student Affairs A jumping off point to more than 25 links including: Time Scheduling Suggestions, Study Skill Checklist, Editing Lecture Notes, Constructive Suggestions Regarding Motivation, Note Taking and In - Class Skills, Priority Setting, etc.
6 Study Skills Package Counselling Services, University of Waterloo Here's a little good advice offered at this site: "You are more likely to succeed if you make small changes and experience positive results than if you try to change everything and set yourself up for failure. A good place to start might be with a change that sounds most reasonable and workable and by applying it to your most difficult subject." **
7 Getting Good Grades Office of Student Affairs - University of Toronto Discusses the PSQ5R method which can make your study reading more effective. PSQ5R stands for Purpose, Survey, Question, Read selectively, Recite, "Rite", Reflect and Review. Also, check out the bottom of the page where a rather "noisy" block of options leads to a whole lot more information. ***
8 Reading Strategies Dr. Kathleen King, Idaho State University Ever wonder why your reading assignments were so difficult? As this article reveals, "College reading, on the other hand, requires meta-cognition, the ability to orchestrate your own learning. You need to think about how your learning style interacts with the text you are reading, and perhaps change your reading strategies to meet the challenges of that text." Meta-cognition???? Hmmmm... that's something to think about while you munch on your Wheaties at breakfast! :=) ***
