Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not reading habits have an effect on the development of study habits in an undergraduate population (n=100). Students reported several aspects of both reading and study skills being elevated along with higher rates of reading habits. Correlational analysis of Text Preview, Perceived Difficulty, Understanding, Concentration, Listening & Taking Notes and Motivation with reported Reading Habits revealed significant correlations. Student implications for reading intervention and application are discussed.
