This is a public educational resource. This excellent web site provides various guides for college students. Topics include studying, reading, classroom participation, writing, math and science skills.
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.
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.
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.
