What are study Skills?
Study Skills are strategies and techniques that enable you to make the most efficient use of your time, resources and academic potential.
For example: Organisation skills/ Preparation/Timetables/Time Management
Many students think that being a good student means just showing up for classes, taking a few notes, reading the textbooks, and studying right before the tests. However, learning, like many other activities, involves a complex set of skills that require practice. For example, if you wanted to become a good basketball player, you would have to learn how to dribble, pass, shoot, rebound, be a team player, etc., and you would have to practice these individual skills over and over in order to improve them
