A. Background of the Study
Reading is an attempt to absorb the thought of the author and know what the author is conveying (Leedy 1956). Studying is the interpretation of reading materials. Study habits and skills are particularly important for college students, whose needs include time management, note taking, internet skill, the elimination of distractions, and assigning a high priority to study.
