Do you think you learn better when someone lectures to you or when you read silently to yourself? Do you work better when you work alone or with someone else? Do you learn better while doing, or by observing? Understanding your learning style is one thing, knowing how to work with it is another. Taking a little time to understand how you learn can save you hours and hours of frustration. Make certain to list how you studied when you were the most successful and to include what does and does not work for you.
