PREFACE STUDY SKILLS FOR LIFE Daniel B., an undergraduate student we know, was recently offered a summer internship in the global investment banking division of one of the country's largest financial institutions. Although the corporate recruiters thought he was highly qualified, Daniel doubted his own ability, worrying that as a liberal-arts major he lacked the basic knowledge and skills to succeed in a business setting. He had never worked with spreadsheets, graphed financial data, or spoken the specialized language of his business colleagues. While he was familiar with classic novels through his college literature courses, he knew little about capital markets and derivatives. He was so filled with self-doubt that he nearly rejected the internship offer. The company recruiters were well aware of Daniel's knowledge "deficits" when they offered him the position. However, from talking with references listed on his resume and with Daniel himself during the interview, they realized that he had a quick mind, superior critical-thinking and study skills, and a willingness to learn, all of which were reflected in excellent grades. They were convinced that he would be able to master everything he needed to know for the internship, especially since the program included a week of intensive training classes designed to get everyone up to speed. After a few weeks of hard work, Daniel acquired the skills he needed-and was now moving ahead of many of the other interns in his ability to analyze and apply complex business concepts to unique problem-solving situations. This true story defines the importance of having solid study and critical-thinking skills in the 21st century. It also illustrates the mission of the first edition of Keys To College Studying: Becoming a Lifelong Learner. Like Daniel, you may find yourself doubting your specific knowledge and skills when, for example, you change majors, get a new boss, or change careers. However, the study skills and critical-thinking skills that you learn in this book will help you succeed in college as they prepare you for the challenge of continuous learning throughout your career and life.
