READING AND STUDY SKILLS, Fifth Edition, Form B, is the alternate version of the Fifth Edition, Form A. It provides students with the essential reading and study skills they need to become independent learners in college. The book is also a brief guide to important word skills, and it includes coverage of motivational skills that help students approach their courses with the right attitudes. Students learn by doing, and so the book offers an abundance of practice activities. In all, there are over 200 exercises that help students learn key comprehension skills. The latest edition contains a complete chapter taken from an introductory sociology text, with which students can practice their reading and study skills. Form B differs from Form A in its reading selections and activities. Instructors, thus, can separate forms of the book from one semester to the next, or from one class to the next.
