Using a simple and direct approach, The Quick College Guide: Reading, Writing, & Studying gives students concise, step-by-step instruction on the essential skills of how to read, write, and study. Because the information in the guide is so basic and necessary, students of all majors will benefit from the information and skills relayed in the chapters. Covering details on reading, test taking, lectures, responsive writing, analysis, lab reports and abstracts, using the Internet, research and research paper writing, and documentation, the text is designed to include basic reading, writing, and study skills in one handy reference. Written with ease of use and accessibility in mind, the guide lessens student apprehension, encourages learning, and motivates students at any level of learning. Though The Quick College Guide is targeted mainly toward students taking classes in Developmental English, Study Skills, Freshman Orientation, or Freshman Composition, upper division students will find it useful as a resource as well. The guide can be used with a reader or an English composition text, or it can be used as a reference in any writing class by those who like to teach from their own materials.Rooks, Clay D. is the author of 'Quick College Guide Reading and Study Skills, Writing and Language Skills, Document Design and Formats, Research and Documentation, Life Skills', published 2002 under ISBN 9780321087126 and ISBN 0321087127.
