Read more From the Back Cover This book is intended for college students at all levels who are taking science, math, or engineering courses at all levels. It covers note-taking, problem-solving, exam strategies, study methods, laboratory exercises, technical writing, dealing with math anxiety, how to interact positively with professors, special situations like summer sessions, and positive attitude. This book is intended for students with a wide variety of backgrounds, studying at any institution from community college to the most competitive schools in the country. The techniques and methods described in this book are applicable to the difficult challenges of technical courses at all levels and in all disciplines because they are practices which facilitate learning in general and are not limited to or described in the context of just one scientific area of study. How to Study for Success in Science, Math, and Engineering Courses can help students who are majoring in technical fields or students who need to take a few technical courses for their major. It is written to have a broad-based appeal to a diverse student population. It addresses the problems that come up time and time again, among students at all types of schools: 'How do I study for this test? Should I emphasize the notes or the homeworks? How do I go about solving these word problems? How do I know if my answer is right? How do I write a good lab report? I can't 'do' math. These equations are so scary!' It was these sorts of questions and comments heard over and over that motivated me to write this book; I know there are many students out there who can benefit from its contents. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
