Navigating the tricky shoals of college can be difficult at any age, and particularly for first-year college students. The folks at Virginia Tech's Student Affairs office have compiled this very nice set of resources for those persons wishing to improve their study skills. First up are four online study skills workshops, including Time Management Strategies for Improving Academic Performance and Strategies for Improving Concentration and Memory. Each of these workshops includes interactive elements, such as memory exercises. Moving on, the site includes information for students with attention deficit disorder. These worksheets include "Editing Lecture Notes," "Remembering," and "Where Does Time Go?" Visitors shouldn't miss the Writing Papers area which provides a very brief overview of how to compose a successful short essay.
