Skills Labs are self-paced, and you have many options to complete the 4 Skills Labs to earn credit in the Skills 232/233 course. You can choose what you want to learn and how you want to learn it!

Study Skills Inventory

Skills Labs include Goal Setting & Motivation, Time Management, Note Taking, Test Taking Anxiety, Textbook Reading, and many more. Please refer to the Skills Lab Sheet for more details.
Additional lab options include individual and group activities. These are good options for repeaters or those interested in being considered as future group leaders.
