This is really an outstanding site. It contains many tips and strategies to help
students evolve into scholars. I could easily see referring students to this in
introductory courses in many, many disciplines. The section on the use of the
Web in finding and presenting information is basic, but clear and well-done.
I've bookmarked this page....

Considering I am a student, and my study habits are not as good as it should be,
I believe that this site has inspired me to try a little harder. This site
really breaks down what you need to know about yourself and how to improve your
study skills in reading, writing, math and test taking.

Technical Remarks:

Simple and straight to the point links. Easy to navigate and learn from.

This site contains many tips and strategies for studying and learning that can
be read in 15 languages in addition to English. Some links lead to pages with
additional links to other web resources, but many topics lead to a compilation
of specific strategies about topics such as peparing for tests, test-taking
strategies, using the web, etc. This appears to be a valuable resource for
instructors and students who need specific information about writing papers,
studying, etc. This item is currently under review by the Teacher Education
Editorial Review Board. 55

This is an incredibly ambitious site with some wonderful webpages. The
information is well-organized, well-written, and well-chosen. I particularly
liked the pages about concept mapping and "thinking like a genius"! I'd think
this site would be very helpful to college students who need quick tips on a
variety of study strategies.

Technical Remarks:

The site was well-designed: attractive and easy to navigate. The grouping of
topics was logical and manageable. Well done!

As a reference librarian I have directed many students to this site. I believe
that it is an excellent place to go for tutorial help in the various classroom
activites that students encounter.
