Statement of the Problem
The objective of this study is to scrutinize the study habits among engineering students in Misamis University. Alongside with, this research paper tends to look through on the significant relationship of the study habits of students and their academic performance.
The following are research questions which guide our study:
1. How do study habits affect the academic performance among engineering students?
2. What are the usual habits of studying among engineering students?
3. How do engineering students look up to their minor courses in terms of their academic performance?
4. How do engineering students look up to their major courses in terms of their academic performance?
There is significant relationship of the study habits among the engineering students in relation to their academic performance.
Scope and Limitations of the Study
This study made an inquiry to those respondents precisely the engineering students taking up English 4 course.
Questionnaires were the foremost device for the collection of pertinent information and are only directed to the engineering students...
