Studying isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. Some methods might work well for one person but not at all for another. Everyone learns differently. It’s important to know your learning style in order to find the best study method for you.
Styles of learning
Visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic (or hands-on) are the four main learning styles. Most people will benefit most from one of these methods, but it’s also possible to combine different styles for optimal results.
How do you learn best?
Learning through visuals
You may find it helpful to create diagrams while studying if you’re a visual learner. Diagrams can help you understand certain structures or ideas.
You could also color-code your notes. It can help you organize information and internalize it more effectively. Videos can also be helpful.
Learning by ear
If you are an auditory learner, you might enjoy studying in groups. Discussions about the material would be beneficial.
Reading your notes aloud can also help you internalize the information. You can also record lectures if your teacher permits it so that you can listen to them later.
Learning to read and write
It’s a good idea to take substantial notes during class and to revisit them often if you learn best by reading and writing.
You may also find that writing something down helps when you’re trying to memorize it. Rereading class materials could also help you retain the information.
Learning by doing
Kinematic learners usually have a lot of energy and enjoy being active. Labs and hands-on activities can help students grasp certain concepts.
You may even find it beneficial to review materials while walking or exercising. If you take breaks during a study session, you will be able to focus better when you return.
While they may seem very different, these four types of learning can all be used to study the same material. By determining your learning style, along with some study methods that work for you, you might find that you achieve better results.
