Creating A Study Map This resource is designed to help you develop your approach to studying for your weekly quizzes. This is the start of an outline for the material for each chapter— you will want to use this as a guide and fill in details from the reading and lecture as needed . What you see here are the main headings for each chapter—use this to review these headings as you go through the book and add the key concepts under each heading using your book and filling in as needed with the lecture. Be sure to identify, list and define the key concepts listed in each of these sections as you study for the test. The more detailed you are in identifying and defining key concepts under each section listed here, the more thorough your study notes will be as you prepare for your quizzes. As you read, make note of all terms that are bolded and/or italicized—these are likely key concepts. Do not limit your study attention to these concepts however—be sure to understand all the concepts listed under each heading, and make note of “lists” presented in your textbook. For example, under Communication Principles in Chapter 1, you should be able to recognize each principle AND understand how it works. Remember, some of your questions on the quizzes will be application questions, not simply defining, so think about how these concepts work together and apply in specific situations. Remember, you can highlight and make notes in your e-book—and you can search by key term. If you haven’t reviewed the tutorial on how to use your e-book in the Technology Support (E-Book Support)—the 2-3 minutes it will take you is well worth it! Don’t forget—your quizzes will include material from the assigned lecture as well—so be sure to watch that carefully and take notes on the concepts presented in it as well as you study for your weekly quizzes.
