From the Back Cover
Using a simple and direct approach, The Quick College Guide gives readers concise, step-by-step instruction on the essential skills of how to read, write, and study. Because the information in the guide is so basic and necessary, all readers will benefit from the information and skills relayed in the chapters. Covering details on reading, test taking, lectures, responsive writing, analysis, lab reports and abstracts, using the Internet, research and research paper writing, and documentation, the book is designed to include basic reading, writing, and study skills in one handy reference. Written with ease of use and accessibility in mind, the guide lessens apprehension, encourages learning, and motivates readers at any level of learning. A step-by-step approach makes the book more approachable and easier to use than traditional references, which tend to be heavy on grammatical terminology and academic language. Reading and writing samples, along with research and documentation examples, illustrate concepts and formats presented throughout the book. Discussion questions and exercises encourage class discussion and facilitate further assignments and practice. An entire chapter on Collaborative Learning helps readers prepare for today's careers. Chapters 10, Writing Journals and Chapter 11, Responsive Writing: Analysis teach the importance and mechanics of effective writing. The book also includes essential, current, and constantly changing information with chapters on Research and Browsing on the Internet as well as tools for Evaluating the Credibility of Internet Sites. For those interested in developing their reading and writing skills.
