Abstract

This investigation focused on the relation between college student drinking behavior and study skills, behaviors, habits, and attitudes among undergraduate students at a predominantly African American university. Students (N = 492) were administered a multimedia alcohol survey with an embedded measure of study practices. The negative and generally statistically significant correlations between study practices and drinking outcomes signify that lower scores on these study practices subscales were associated with greater alcohol use and abuse. Multiple regression analyses evaluated the contribution of study habits and attitudes to the prediction of alcohol consumption outcomes, beyond sex, age, and grades.
