Reading Skills for College Students increases students' reading skills and reading enjoyment!

The purpose of the seventh edition of Reading Skills for College Students is the same as previous editions--to improve the reading skills of college students and to increase their reading enjoyment. Hancock continues to help students improve their vocabulary, comprehension, reading rate, and study and test-taking abilities. The seventh edition covers all the reading skills required for college study, giving students hands-on practice with a variety of exercises. An abundance of information is available through expanding technology revolution; however, it takes advanced reading skills to select, read, and evaluate all this information.

Reading Skills for College Students serves as an excellent resource for the rest of students' college careers by providing instruction on reading in six different major content areas. The author has included specific chapters on reading for Literature, History, Psychology, Biology, Computers and Data Processing, and Business courses.
