There's still time to register for the "Brain Game" at Penn State York. This course is designed to help students improve their learning and study skills. The "Brain Game" offers students tips to help overcome test-taking jitters and offers strategies to keep from daydreaming. The course, held from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Aug.10, is geared for high school or college-bound students who want to improve their skills.

Through interactive exercises, participants will discover how to spend less time but learn more studying a textbook using the "SQ4R" method, the do's and don'ts of note-taking, and how to become a more effective and productive student. The program includes the booklet "Improving Your Study Skills."
