Check out Foundations for Learning (L.Hazard and JP Nadeau) Pearson-Prentice Hall Publisher.
126 pages of great and concise information. A great read.
Compliments Skip's work (his is more student development based while this is more academic based). I use material from both to teach my class.

Subject: Student Development Reader
We offer a first year seminar for underprepared students who do not meet
the university's admission requirements but have successfully completed
a Summer Bridge Program. The course focuses more on student development
than study skills and uses On Course by Skip Downing. Can anyone
recommend a good companion reader that helps students develop critical
thinking skills while practicing their reading skills?
