Essential College Skills collection

  • How can I study for the COMPASS test?
  • I need to study smarter, not harder.
  • How do I find out about scholarships?
  • I can't figure out my TI-83 calculator.
  • I need more practice inverting and multiplying fractions.
You'll find books, workbooks, and videos to help you with all of these questions and more in the Essential Skills Collection located on the second floor of the Holman Library on the wall by the Reference Collection.
Unlike reference books that stay in the library, you can check out Essential Skills books for one week.

The Essential Skills Collection contains resources that help you build the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful college student. There are workbooks to help you study for GED, COMPASS, SAT and ACT exams.
If you need extra practice problems for basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry or calculus, or you're balancing equations in chemistry or taking physics this quarter, this is the place to look. There are videos so you can watch while the instructor solves math problems and explains the steps. And yes--there is a video that shows you how to use your TI-83!!!

If you need to find out about scholarships or figure out a major, there are books for that too. If you want to learn to manage your time better, we've got you covered. Check out the Now Habit or Study Smarter, Not Harder. Look around, ask questions. A librarian can help.
