Subjects beginning with "EDUCATION / Teaching Methods & Materials" are intended for works discussing methods of teaching the subject specified or for materials used for teaching that subject.  For works discussing methods of studying and/or teaching a topic not covered under "EDUCATION / Teaching Methods & Materials", use the "Study & Teaching" subheading in the appropriate section (such as ARCHITECTURE).  If a topic is represented in both places, use subjects beginning with "EDUCATION / Teaching Methods & Materials" to cover works discussing teaching through secondary school level and use "Study & Teaching" subheadings for higher level works.

Use "EDUCATION / Study Skills" for general works about studying and use subjects in the STUDY AIDS section or in other sections for works on studying for specific tests or for works about specific topics.
