Take Stock of Your Skills and Learn Some New Ones

The study habits that helped get you here are not necessarily the ones that will help sustain you, and identifying the additional skills you need is not always an intuitive process.

The Academic Skills Inventory is intended to provide new techniques and approaches to try, as well as offer encouragement and reinforcement for the strategies you are already using. After you select which topics you want to explore, the inventory generates comments that are tailored to your responses. It takes about 5-15 minutes to complete.
