How To Get The Most Out Of Studying: A Video Series
We have placed these videos on our website as a useful resource to students as they define or redefine their approach to studying at the college level.
Study strategies that were useful in high school may not translate well to the college setting. These videos not only reveal WHY certain strategies work but also HOW they can be implemented into a student's daily routine.
All videos were created by Dr. Stephen Chew at Samford University.
