A unique integration of study and critical-thinking skills to help students succeed
Study and Critical Thinking Skills in College, Eighth Edition aligns closely with the ways students read, study, learn, think, and network in the twenty-first century. McWhorter discusses the active strategies that develop students' proficiency with text and lecture material, emphasizing that students must adapt how they read and how they study to suit the characteristics of each unique academic discipline. Study and Critical Thinking Skills in College also encourages students to study and think in ways that match their learning styles and to use technologies (such as online databases and social media) that maximize their productivity.
