This resource, originally featured in the Scout Report on 11-16-2018, is one that students should definitely check out as they prepare for the upcoming school year.
Students and educators may find The Dartmouth E-Guide to Academic Success to be a helpful resource. This e-guide is a free downloadable book published by Dartmouth College's Academic Skills Center in 2017. In 8 chapters and fewer than 100 pages (double-spaced), it offers readers a thorough, concise narrative reference for how to survive and thrive in college. It begins by introducing readers to the idea of a growth mindset and explaining how to set effective goals for college, then walks readers through strategies for time management. The e-guide also includes a variety of methods for important study skills, such as taking useful notes, reading efficiently, and writing college essays. Students (current and former) may also find the e-guide's tips on overcoming procrastination and enhancing productivity to be helpful. Links to cited references (both peer-reviewed and popular) and additional information are included throughout the book, and it makes good use of explanatory graphics as well. This e-guide was written by Carl Thum, Director of the Academic Skills Program, and Jonathan Lu, an undergraduate student at Dartmouth College.
