Abstract—The purpose of this study is to investigate the metacognitive reading strategies employed by fifty four undergraduates in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).

The results of this study should help language practitioner to train students on how to adapt or use different strategies effectively when reading different types of text.
