Book Description

How to Learn Like a Pro! features the “big six” effective learning/study skills topics:

– Learning styles and preferences
– Time and materials management
– Critical thinking and reading
– Note-taking
– Memory principles and techniques
– Test-taking

Each of the six units featuring a total of twenty-three lessons and accompanying exercises (with a dash of humor here and there) were developed with the diverse student body of the community college in mind as well as learners in other educational venues.

The curriculum was designed for an eleven-week term, but for instructors of trimester- and semester-length classes, each unit includes a section on additional assignments, activities, and assessment options. Special attention was given to exercises that incorporate diverse learning styles as well as the varied educational needs and concerns of students ranging from the eighteen-year old freshman to older students, returnees, and international students.
