College Reading and Study Skills teaches reading, critical thinking and study skills for today’s diverse students, encouraging them to apply these integrated skill sets to their coursework and future academic success.

Kathleen McWhorter wrote College Reading and Study Skills, primarily, for courses that are half reading, half study skills. Emphasizing comprehension and metacognition, College Reading and Study Skills approaches reading and study skills as essential skills necessary for college success.  The text focuses on reading and learning as a cognitive process, encouraging students to approach reading as an active mental process of selecting, processing, and organizing information to be learned.
