When you first come to University you may be a little shocked at the amount of reading that is required of you, usually in a short period of time. The important thing is not to get bogged down and feel overwhelmed by the material. You can avoid this by:

  • selecting your reading material wisely
  • keeping your purpose in mind as you read
  • using different reading styles
  • taking short breaks periodically

This section will introduce you to some different reading styles, and how to use them.
