Dear Student,

Welcome to the PASS program.

controlled process that includes everything from

how you read to where you study.

In this series of classes you will learn:

    • note taking techniques
    • reading strategies
    • time management
    • problem solving
    • memorization techniques
    • test taking strategies.
    • how to improve your class participation

home study will be increased and your confidence

and grades should improve.
