Get Connected: Study Skills
Many beginning and non-traditional college students are not fully prepared for the academic challenges of higher education. Drawing on years of experience counseling and assisting college students, Dillon's GET CONNECTED: STUDY SKILLS offers students the personal tools and academic skills they need to succeed in college. Chapters 1-6 cover essential study skills, including goal setting, time management and motivation, learning preferences, critical thinking, note taking, and exam strategies, while chapters 7-9 address issues affecting student achievement academically, professionally, and personally. Topics include communication skills, physical and fiscal fitness, and relationship building. In addition, live workshops and E-conferences for study skills instruction are available to supplement the text. Dillon's engaging writing style, clear organization, and solid research, make this a key component in the first-year college student's development.
