  Results: The mean standard deviation is 2.47±0.40 of four. The reported study skills are weak (43.6%), moderate­ (53.6%) ­and sufficient­ (2.8%).­The study skills of female students is significantly higher than males (p=0.017) and freshmen’s Study skills is better than that others (p<0.0001).

  Conclusion: The study skills of the majority of students are not sufficient. It seems that studying in university could not improve study skills and it is a necessity for the students to pass study skills workshop or even a course as a part of university curriculum.
