This text is geared to students who are academically underprepared for college-level studies, especially first-generation and at-risk students. The sixth edition ofKeys to Effective Learningtext helps students build habits for success and develop the thinking, self-management, and study skills they need to succeed academically. This edition is streamlined to focus more on essential study skills, with greater coverage of memory, studying, reading, and test-taking. It retains its acclaimed simple-to-use Critical and Creative Thinking coverage, and adds relevance by addressing the two greatest barriers to staying in school-time and money management. Recognizing that the first step in developing the independent thinking skills needed for college-level work is understandinghowyou think, this revision builds studentsrs" self-awareness in three ways: embedded in-chapter self-assessments, "powerful question" features, and learning preferences grids that asks them to think about how they learn in a variety of situations. The text offers a pre- and post-course assessment. The Habits for Success theme is now more integrated and practical. Students assess which habits theyrs"ll need in college and how to form those habits so they have the tools to increase their preparedness, confidence, and commitment to learning.
