Math Study Skills outlines good study habits and provides students with study strategies and tips to improve in areas such as time management, organization, and test-taking skills. With a friendly and relatable voice, Alan Bass addresses the misgivings and challenges many students face in a math class, and offers techniques to improve their study skills, as well as opportunities to practice and assess these techniques.
