DESCRIPTION : Although the average college student spends only between 15 and 18 hours in class in any given week, increasing the amount of free time, there is a correlating increase in the workload. Many college students never learned effective study habits in high school and believe they will be able to make it through college just as easily. However, college and university professors and administrators claim that studying is directly connected to a student s ultimate success or failure. By reading 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students, you can improve the effectiveness of your studying. After all, effectiveness is not measured by the length of time spent studying or blankly staring at a textbook but by the level of comprehension. In this new book, you will learn how to make a study schedule, how to design an effective study environment, how to read for comprehension, how to get organized, how to find your learning style, how to take notes during lectures, how to listen better in class, how to use reference sources, how to boost your concentration, how to stay motivated, how to review and edit your notes, and how to increase reading comprehension. You will learn effective note taking strategies, where to study, when to study, time management skills, strategies for reading novels and text books, memorization techniques, and organizational skills. Additionally, you will find out how to stay awake while studying, how to change your current habits, and how to make studying more enjoyable. We will provide you with various studying methods, including flashcards, quizzes, summarizing, outlining, answering study guide questions, and the proven SQ3R method, as well as exercises to help improve your skills. Furthermore, 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students is full of tips from students just like you, as well as professors. No two people learn the same way, and no one study method will work for everyone. While this book introduces you to different study methods, the aim is to improve your learning, your understanding, and, ultimately, your grades.

Beautiful and talented in her own right, Bree has used her antics to gain attention from her R & B–diva mother and record-producer father.

They become partners—in and out of bed—and launch a sexy lingerie line, Naughty, that becomes an international success.
