How do I change the page numbers on my Word document so that the first page (cover page) doesn't have a number on it.
After creating the header or footer for your document, select the Design tab. In the Options section, select Different First Page. This will allow your first page to remain without a page number listed and the rest of the pages to be numbered correctly. In the Design tab you can also choose whether to have your page number at the top or bottom of the page and add any additional information needed. Such as Last name or Class.

How do I learn technical terms and phrases?
I've always used note cards and repetition when trying to learn new terms. Place the term on one side of the card and the definition on the opposite side. You can study by yourself and check your memorization, or with a friend who can tell you whether you've gotten something right.

How do I search in Academic Databases? It is like Google? What are good search strategies.
Searching in Academic databases is nothing like Google searches. You aren't able to type long sentences in to the search bar and get good results. You need to pick keywords out of what you are looking for. These are also some search strategies to get a search more tailored to what you are looking for. Searching with "AND" Think of "who, what, when, where, & why" for ways to focus your topic. When you connect keywords with "AND", you will narrow your search because you will only receive results that include BOTH keywords. Searching with "OR" Before searching, brainstorm words or concepts that are similar in meaning and use those as search terms. When you use "OR" to connect keywords, you broaden your search because the database will give you results that include either of your keywords. Searching with "NOT" When you use "NOT" with your keywords, you narrow your search because your results will exclude any sources including the second keyword. You can also TRUNCATE Insert an asterisk (hold the Shift key & the 8 key at the same time) to get results that include all possible endings of a root word. For example: "symbol*" will retrieve symbol, symbolizes, symbolism, etc. "devia*" will retrieve deviates, deviant, deviance, etc.
