Victus Study Skills System
Study Smarter, Not Harder
Do your students really know how to study? Studying is
something all students are expected to do, but seldom are they
taught effective methods.
Victus Study Skills System is a systems approach to study.
Mastering isolated skills might achieve high test scores, but
long-term success comes when students view studying as a way
of life. Help prepare your students in:
• Organization, time management, goal setting
• Note taking, test taking
• Reading comprehension
• Improving existing habits & learning new ones
• Studying smarter, not harder
Victus helps students succeed in academics and in life! Cathy
Duffy says . . .
“Effective study skills are essential for academic excellence, but
few students are taught an explicit system for developing study
skills. Most flounder around, gradually developing their own
methods that might be more or less effective. The Victus Study
Skills System is about developing effective study skills and achieving academic goals, but it also helps students apply the same process to other areas of their life such as faith and finances. “Victus”
is the Latin word for “way of life,” and students are taught that
planning in all areas of life is important.”
