How to Improve Study Skills
In the context of a learning environment, studying is getting new useful information in order to solve a problem, achieve a goal, or pass a test. New and useful information is considered to be new knowledge. If you apply that knowledge, then you can develop new skills.
The way that you study depends on your style of learning. For example, you might prefer to read books, listen to lectures, write about a subject, or do some kind of hands-on experience. People might use a combination of these types. (See Learning Styles)
