Item 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.

Advice for a Successful Academic Career in College  Sep 17, 2008
Despite the many years of preparation students receive throughout childhood and adolescence, many are rarely equipped for the new life that awaits them in college. College grants students a level of independence that tests their strengths and weaknesses in various areas, with studying being a crucial factor in their academic success. 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students is one of the ultimate learning tools for college students that find the academic experience of higher learning to be challenging and want to learn how to better adapt to a new learning environment.

The objective of this book is to ensure that students avoid the many downfalls associated with studying. Some college students tend to make the same mistakes year after year. 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students motivates students to ease their transition into college by thinking wisely and using the first year of college to prepare for the rest of their academic career.

This book shares principles of studying in a strategic style by addressing several important topics, such as the fundamentals of reading, exam taking, note taking, and more. Reading is explained as a system that many times drives the studying process. When done every day in conjunction with note-taking, valuable learning and better grades become the result. According to this book, there are proven techniques for exams and students can learn about the different exams such as the essay exam, the open book exam, the objective exam and other test taking strategies. It is also stressed that completing assignments is a must. The book also leaves room to impart knowledge and tips on the special circumstances that occur in the studying process. In this age with new technologies, college students sometimes have online courses during their semesters of study. Additionally, they also have to work with one another on group projects, balance their school with extracurricular activities or work, finals week and other circumstances.

This book will show you ways to make most of a college experience by getting a well-rounded education and still make time for a social life. The obstacles college students tend to face can include the way college classrooms are structured, the flexibility in student's class schedules, the expectations that professors have for their students, the many distractions that impede a student's concentration, and other challenges. One important piece of advice given is that students adopt a strict time management principle and make a schedule. This helps students balance their time and relieves them of forgetting the important dates and times. By keeping track of their daily activities, students will be better equipped in the area of delegating time slots for certain tasks.

Students are individuals and therefore learn differently. Thus, use this book to help you stay ahead of the class by improving your learning capabilities. College students like you should take advantage of this phase in life, for the skills and achievements acquired in college prepare students for the bigger challenges such as seeking career employment.
A College Pre-Requisite  Aug 6, 2008
101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students by Susan M. Roubidoux is a valuable resource for anyone heading off to college - whether it be a freshman, a transfer student or even an under-performing senior ready to turn over a new leaf. While the tone is a bit formal and serious - even while the author is reminding students to schedule time for fun - the information is accurate, well-organized and abundant.
The book addresses virtually all aspects of academics, from how to choose a prime study spot, to how to ace the dreaded group project. Roubidoux encourages self-awareness by describing the various learning styles and suggests ways to make the best use of each one. She also offers tips on handling various forms of exams, from essay to "True and False," - information which would benefit junior high and high school students as well as the college crowd.
Specific topics are easy to find thanks to clearly labeled chapters and sub-sections and a handy index. Information is provided in concise, manageable doses that will not overwhelm. This is the kind of book that students should read all the way through and then return to again and again as new challenges come up.
How to Get the Most out of Your College Experience  Jul 28, 2008
COPYRIGHT © 2008 by Atlantic Publishing Group, Inc.

This book is a comprehensive guide through the often treacherous terrain of academia. It includes chapters on such staples as time management, study skills, note taking, test preparation, and vocabulary flash cards, as well as useful tips on less familiar territory such as online classes, group projects, study abroad, and internships, and an occasional nod to more esoteric topics such as nontraditional students.
The book's strengths are its logical organization, usually clear writing style, and eye-catching format. Especially useful was the chapter giving a detailed explanation of key prompts in writing assignments or essay exams--words such as summarize, explain, compare, illustrate, trace, apply--words that may seem interchangeable but have distinct meanings. Less successful were the author's references to artful terms such as outlining, mapping, clustering, boolean logic, and wild cards, with no accompanying explanation. The emphasis of the book was on print resources, with scant mention of online resources or textbook enhancements, electronic classroom platforms, smart rooms, or online lab exercises, although the author acknowledged the lure of such distractions as facebook or e-mail.

The book seemed designed for students who attended undemanding high schools that hardly ever assigned homework or research papers, as though students would be unprepared for the rigors of anything approaching college level work, and for these students the title is woefully misleading. To make the transition from the days when students would finish all assignments in study hall, to the new regime in which students are expected to study for at least two hours for every hour spent in class, this is not going to make studying easier or faster. Rather, it will show students how to get the most out of their learning experience by working diligently and putting in extra effort by setting up a schedule, highlighting key words in passages, copying class notes, making vocabulary flash cards, etc.

The study tips at times can become exhausting or downright obsessive: preparing a class schedule which notes precise class times instead of rounding out to the nearest hour, determining where to grab some study space between classes, formulating memory tricks for spelling words such as "Dictionary--Did I count the ice on Nanna's old road yet?" There were also the ubiquitous "Case Studies," which were actually questionnaires filled out by various college graduates, now employed in academia, and occasional awkward, unedited passages such as "Time-consuming extracurricular activities that are, such as sports may have team- or university-enforced study sessions," or "Students should figure out how really study best and commit to remember terms unless I make note cards-period. So, each semester I bought a big stack o note cards."

Nevertheless, students who extract what will work best for them and follow the author's recommendations will develop good time management practices and solid study habits, and will indeed live up to the promise of the book to be a successful student.

Life changing experience!  Jul 11, 2008
Everyone, listen up! If you're a college freshman, like me, this book is probably one of the most important you'll ever read in college. Before reading this book, I too was having skewed perceptions on how college will be like. Basically, I thought that it was all gonna be just like high-school, but with ten times the parties. I was about to make one of the mistakes that freshmen usually do, as this book has clearly shown me. Did you know that only 63% of students actually get their diplomas and finish college? Me neither. Here's what this book taught me about why this happens.
Most freshmen can't get over one of these obstacles: class structure, student schedule, expectations and distractions. Guess what I was about to do? College isn't about having fun, but college isn't about studying hardcore either. College is about studying whilst also having fun and indulging in social activities. With that in mind, I can't wait to get that life experience in the next 4 years. "101 ways..." by Susan Roubidoux is just the help I need in accomplishing that.
So what will you learn? One of the most important skills you'll need to succeed in college is to be organized. And that's just one of the things you'll learn how to do, besides what to do every day, how to manage your days, reading and writing strategies, exam studying techniques, memory enhancing tricks, completing assignments and even handling special circumstances, don't think you'll be able to avoid those. Plus, we'll all get to a point when we'll most likely feel almost overwhelmed by it all. This book will help you cope with it, to avoid downfalls and to generally keep up with it all.
Here's a handy new trick I've learnt: use the first year to prepare for the next ones. I won't say more, you'll find it all in the book. My rating is 5 out of 5 stars, I practically owe the great experience that college will be for me to this book. So thanks a lot Susan!
A must have accessory for any new college student  Jul 8, 2008
There are a lot of guides on how to succeed in college out there, but rarely does one cover so much ground in so little time. Ms. Roubidoux's advice flows easily from one tip to the next, acquainting new college students to their environment while giving practical suggestions in a voice that never crosses the line into pedantic murmuring. With her stated focus on active learning skills, student self-awareness, and motivation, she manages to turn what seem like simple tricks into a completely well-developed and comprehensive gameplan for the new student to don like armor before stepping into this new arena of heightened play.

As a professor, I found each one of her tips to resound with practicality and truthfulness. She does not stint when it comes to the hard facts--college is harder than high school, deal with it--but she accepts the inevitable--spending time with friends to have that ephemeral "college experience" is equally important to students, so her approach to this new level of education is a balanced blend between academic achievement and actual life experience. A big proponent of lists and charts, schedules and honest considerations of one's personal strengths and weaknesses, Ms. Roubidoux has created more than 101 easy steps to success; she has masterminded an entire system for tackling college and succeeding.

But this book is not all about generic suggestions and tips; time and again Ms. Roubidoux shows that she knows what she's talking about with detailed examples of how this or that theory works (her section on responding to key terms in essay exams is sure to lead to solid As), and her extensive case studies only reinforce her strategies by giving real life examples of how real students deal with real college situations.

Though the English professor in me found a few comma issues and a somewhat confusing usage of student/students a bit distracting at first, the swift narration and utter usefulness of this book quickly overshadowed any minor gripes with editing I had, and by the time I reached the section on making a schedule, I found myself taking notes and considering what I could do to make my own time teaching and grading better spent.

A must have for any student heading off to college, 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for College Students is a highly readable and extremely handy guide for anyone preparing to sail the somewhat treacherous waters of higher education.
