The purpose of the researcher was to investigate study behaviors of undergraduate and graduate students. The independent variables investigated were college classification, gender, cumulative undergraduate G.P.A., and average hours studied per week. The dependent variables were Feelings of Lack of Competence, Low Security, and Poor Self-esteem: Preparing for Day-to-Day, Routine Academic Activites; Carrying Out Specific Long Range Academic Tasks; and Total Scale. The Sample consisted of 59 males and 81 females. Four composite null hypotheses were tested, employing a three-way analysis of variance (general linear model). A total of 56 plus 56 recurring comparisons were made. Of the 56 comparisons 16 were for main effects and 40 were interactions. Of the 16 main effects, 12 were statistically significant at the .05 level. Of the 40 interactions, 3 were statistically significant at the .05 level.
