ENG 343NC: Academic Reading and Study Skills
English 343 (ENG 343NC) is a free, 0 unit class (does not show on transcripts) created specifically to provide students with academic reading and study skills refinement. This is an open-entry/open-exit course that allows students to either drop in for assistance with particular concerns or to develop more broad plans for continual progression over the semester (no minimum/maximum number of visits).

- Understanding, organizing, and assimilating college reading assignments in any subject
- Practicing study skills strategies such as annotation, mapping and Cornell note-taking
- Utilizing effective memory and test taking strategies
- Developing all levels of writing skills
- Improving reading rate and comprehension
