Introduction

Reading is an attempt to absorb the thought of the author and know what the author is conveying (Leedy 1956). Studying is the interpretation of reading materials. Study habits and skills are particularly important for postgraduate students, whose needs include time management, notetaking, Internet skill, the elimination of distractions, and assigning a high priority to study. Fielden (2004) states that good study habits help the student in critical reflection in skills outcomes such as selecting, analyzing, critiquing, and synthesizing. Nneji (2002) states that study habits are learning tendencies that enable students work privately. Azikiwe (1998) describes study habits as the way and manner a student plans his or her private reading outside lecture hours in order to master a particular subject or topic. Study habits help students master their areas of specialization.

The objective of this study is to examine the study habits of postgraduate students in selected Nigerian universities, looking at duration, place of study, materials used for study, and their main motivators. This study will help to establish whether postgraduates are on par with their peers in other countries in the acquisition of intellectual skills.

Literature Review

Study habits may be taken for granted, particularly in developing countries. In Africa, there is widespread reading in all scholarly fields, but less is being achieved in writing and publication. Efficient study habits can strengthen writing. Professors in the developing countries, such as those in Nigerian universities, should attempt to "equip graduates with…...

Handling Chicks

...great restaurants. Remember that they're cooking their asses off when they're home, so they know good food. A quick trip to Coco's for strawberry pancakes just ain't gonna cut it for a woman who bakes chocolate souffles in her spare time. Read some magazines and find out where the cool places in town are. Get ready to drop a hundred and fifty bucks, including the wine. It'll be worth it just to find out what she'll make you for breakfast the next morning. 168 THE COMPLETE A * *HOLE ' S GUIDE d. Let Them Bitch—Chicks spend virtually their entire lives listening to people bitch. Their boyfriends, their husbands, their kids, their parents—every person in a woman's life will eventually look to her for guidance, support, blahblahblah, blahblahblahblah. Women in their forties are tired of listening, they don't want to hear about anybody else's shit anymore. They don't care about your lost goals, your painful childhood memories, your sack of worthless emotional baggage. They want to talk about their own stuff. Go ahead and let them. If you listen to a fortyyear-old woman talk about her own problems for ten minutes or more, there's a good possibility that she's not only whipping up a quick filet mignon after she blows you for the next three hours, but she's running down to the local mall to get you a whole boatload of clothes before you leave tomorrow morning. Oh, you don't have to actually listen for those ten minutes, just think about something pleasant, like......
