Academic Survival Skills, Counseling & Guidance 205 is primarily for students who haven't been in school for a while or who do not feel prepared. You will learn how to study, how to take notes, how to avoid test anxiety, how to improve your memory, how to read textbooks, etc. There is also a lab connected to the class where you can earn units for studying. It is a great way to learn how to study and put those techniques to work for your other classes.
