(Feb. 1, 2010)--UTSA students can beef up their test-taking and study skills in preparation for midterms with UTSA's new Midterm Boot Camp. Sponsored by the Tomas Rivera Center and UTSA Libraries, the program is 2-6 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 7 at both the Main and Downtown campuses. The program is free and open to UTSA students.

Students can participate in study skills workshops or simply drop in for group studying, complemented by free refreshments and other giveaways. Students will walk away from the boot camp with information on how to study in "power hours" -- a proven technique that leads to better information retention.

"Just re-reading chapters from a textbook is not an effective use of a student's time," said Melissa Thomas, assistant director of learning assistance in the Tomas Rivera Center. "The power-hours method really helps students digest large amounts of information in the most efficient way possible."
