Study Skills

The following resources provide information on developing study skills. Academic Coaches can assist your development of these skills. If you would like assistance incorporating any of these materials into your daily routine, schedule a coaching appointment through ISU appointments.

Do you feel discouraged by your exam scores? The Academic Success Center feels the way you study can be more important than how long you study.
