While many study skills, composition and reading skills texts separate these activities into discrete skills to be learned separately, this books recognizes that these skills are interconnected. A student who struggles with the reading will have a hard time writing about it or discussing it. A student who has inadequate strategies for listening to lectures will struggle to see the connections between the lecture and the reading. Therefore, this book moves away from the “skills and drills” texts that are so common in reading and writing textbooks. Instead, this book features process and provides opportunities for students (and instructors) to think about the best ways to approach academic tasks. For example, a “skills and drills” oriented book might teach students how to take Cornell Notes and use graphic organizers, but it does not provide any information for students that would allow them to decide when it would be best to choose one note taking method over the other. This book’s main focus is helping students develop that sort of judgement.

The advent of electronics has had a profound impact on our lives and impacted nearly every product that we use either directly or indirectly. Without electronics, present day computers, cell phones, stereos, televisions, and the internet would not be possible. And of course, without computers and modern communications tools, society could not have made the huge strides in fields such as medicine, aerospace technologies, meteorology, transportation, agriculture, education, and many others. It is for these reasons that the invention of the transistor is considered as one of the most important technological advancements in history.
