General Study Skills:

Avoiding Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a very serious issue affecting college students. Many students do not understand the rules for properly citing information they are trying to discuss in their college papers. First, you should familiarize yourself with SUNY Oneonta's policies on Academic Honesty in the Student Code of Conduct. Then, take the time to familiarize yourself with the rules for properly citing sources.

Computer Literacy

You've probably realized you need some basic computer skills to function as a college student. We have a terrific program at SUNY Oneonta for helping you with essential computer skills. Check out Technology Instruction Program for Students (TIPS).

English as a Second Language Resources

Anatomy & Physiology, Human & Animal Biology

Biochemistry

General Biology

Medical Terminology

Chemistry Content Study Websites

Among the sites listed here are many that are AP or Regents' level -- not because the material is equivalent to the material in college-level courses but because they can provide clarification on important, basic concepts.

One important study technique is to pre-test and post-test yourself. Several of these sites provide quizzes that can be used for that purpose.
