Reading Skills and Strategies for Students One of the things students soon realize about college is that they must learn most things on their own, and often, this requires them to locate resources outside the classroom. This is not a foreign idea for those accustomed to finding a tutor in working math problems or writing essays; but, when it comes to asking for help in reading and comprehending a textbook, students are sometimes hesitant to reveal any difficulties they may be experiencing.

Reading Your Textbooks Effectively and Efficiently Skip to main content Dartmouth College Academic Skills Center Quick Links Home > Assess your Learning Style > Active Reading: Comprehension and Rate Introducing Multimodal Composition in the Two-Y...
