This text is geared to students who are academically underprepared for college-level studies, especially first-generation and at-risk students.
The sixth edition of Keys to Effective Learning text helps students build habits for success and develop the thinking, self-management, and study skills they need to succeed academically. This edition is streamlined to focus more on essential study skills, with greater coverage of memory, studying, reading, and test-taking. It retains its acclaimed simple-to-use Critical and Creative Thinking coverage, and adds relevance by addressing the two greatest barriers to staying in schoolâtime and money management.Â Â Recognizing that the first step in developing the independent thinking skills needed for college-level work is understanding how you think, this revision builds studentsâ self-awareness in three ways: embedded in-chapter self-assessments, âpowerful questionâ features, and learning preferences grids that asks them to think about how they learn in a variety of situations. The text offers a pre- and post-course assessment.Â Â The Habits for Success theme is now more integrated and practical.Â Â Students assess which habits theyâll need in college and how to form those habitsÂ so they have theÂ tools to increase their preparedness, confidence, and commitment to learning.Â Â Â
