The transition from high school to college or even from a community college to a four–year university can bring many changes and adjustments to student life. These include time management, note taking, textbook reading, test preparation, and more. SARC offers a variety of resources that aid in developing these skills.

The College Level Study Skills Inventory will assist in providing students immediate feedback on their current approach to college level study skills. There are six critical study skills college students need to consistently be developing: text book reading, note taking, memory, test preparation, concentration, and time management. At the conclusion of the inventory, each of these skills will be assessed based on the manner in which the questions were answered.
