The purpose of study skills is two-fold. The first purpose is to ensure academic success through the teaching of study strategies (notetaking, taking tests, studying for tests, reading comprehension strategies, etc)... The second purpose of study skills is to provide support for students with their academic classes. This includes studying for tests, homework help, and extra time to master concepts taught in academic classes.
