Student Survival Guide
A student survival guide will serve as a path to success for University of Phoenix Students. In these last nine weeks I have amassed a load of knowledge, techniques, and new practices. From all of this I have found new and improved ways to better myself as student, an employee, and a person. In this paper I will cover using Axia’s Educational Resources, Upholding Academic Honesty, Setting and Achieving Goals, Managing Time Wisely, Fostering Reading Comprehension and Retention, and Applying Personality and Learning Styles.
Axia’s Educational Resources are the first piece in this survival guide. The only way to succeed in school is to have a good foundation of educational resources. Resources such as an excellent online library, writing center, guides to APA format, downloadable appendices, etc, are all the early building blocks in what you will need to succeed in college. I have used the resources, such as the APA format guide and downloadable audio features many times. These are two of the many educational resources that have aided in my learning and retaining of material. The University Library is probably the most helpful spot as a student when doing work for a class. In the past, a typical college student would have to venture to an old university library and search through shelf after shelf trying to find a book that would hopefully have some material you could use in it. Now, the online library is as easy to navigate as something like Facebook. Self explanatory tabs at the tops of the page and a search bar make finding even just a simple article a walk in the park. Up holding academic honesty is another very important task on this road to personal success and survival. This policy may be a little confusing if this is the first time you have dealt with it, but breaking it down into a few small sections will hopefully make it easier. To help myself better...
