Study Skills

Learning study skills is an important part of being a successful student. Remember that for every hour you spend in class, you will need to spend an additional 2 hours outside of class to complete homework for the class. This can include reading assignments, writing papers, doing research, or doing group work.

PCC offers one, two, or three-credit Study Skills classes: CG 111A, 111B, or 111C and college counselors may be able to help you address study skills and ways to develop successful study habits. Additionally, there are many study skill workshops offered at the college that can be found in the PCC Calendar of Events in MyPCC.
