For this essay I am evaluating my very own study skills and figuring out my strengths and weaknesses by using a SWOT analysis approach. Once these issues have been determined any deficiencies will be resolved by way of a diagnostic plan. SWOT means Advantages, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats and was created by Albert Humphrey at Stanford School in the 1960's. SWOT Evaluation is an efficient process for interpreting my Strengths and Weaknesses, as well as for talking about the Opportunities available to me and the Risks hindering me. In order to be successful when learning research skills must be purchased. Research skills include specific things like time management, word consuming lectures, concentration, memorizing and presenting and public speaking skills.
