Result shows that there was significant difference between mean pretest and post-test stress knowledge score and planned teaching programme was very effective in improving the knowledge of the students regarding study skill technique with calculated t-test value 16.461 which is greater than table value with 0.01 level of significant. It was found that there is no significant association between pre-test SE score with selected demographic variables found as the p value obtained is greater than 0.05 level of significance.
