The article reports on research on American students' knowledge of study techniques. Students in public schools are not learning facts about proper study techniques as the move from grade seven to grade twelve. A small amount of time spent in direct teaching of study techniques is effective. Teachers and college students did not score high enough to be able to teach effectively study techniques. The students' test was given to 837 students in grades seven to twelve. The teachers' test was given to 32 college seniors who were preparing to teach and to 23 teachers in public schools.
