It is absolutely essential to always look at improving your study skills. As the word applies, it is a "skill" - defn. " A developed talent or ability ". If you are taking online classes as part of our Paralegal Program, and most students are taking at least one or two, you will need to be self-motivated, and apply excellent "study skills" - since you cannot just raise your hand - or course, you can email the instructor. Read study skills, and apply them in your classes. Hope this helps. Prof. J.
