Struggling to make sense of difficult readings?

Most students find some of their college reading difficult to understand.  This isn't too surprising as students deal with new ideas and theories all the time!  However, reading difficult texts is a part of college life so it is important to learn to 'take in' the information that you read.  Here are some steps you can follow...
  1. Pre-read
  2. Look for a summary
  3. Read the entire text once
  4. Look up the words you don't understand
  5. Try to understand as you read
  6. Take notes
  7. Persevere!
