It happens often that students aren’t really aware of the way they learn, their particular learning style. Consequently, they are often not able to reach their potential fully.

In general, we can distinguish between 3 major learning styles: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Well, the truth of the matter is that you may well be a not-so-good learner just because you haven’t used your best or preferred learning style or haven’t discovered it yet.

You may easily attain much higher scores if you’ll adjust the learning style you’re using.

Just read what Jeremy wrote: “I always imitated the learning styles of other people but I found out that that didn’t work. I really thought that I was rather stupid as I didn’t understand any topic if I learned in the same way that they did.

But then I started to learn about personal studying styles and I adjusted my studying style and worked on my GED vocabulary.

Well, there was an immediate change and I managed to prepare for my GED® exam quickly and passed!”

You may well be tempted to check out some different things listed on this page and trying some new things is a good idea. When some other way is working well for you, just use that!

So being aware of the way you study and learn, your particular learning style, will help you reach your full potential.

Your specific learning style is affecting the way you understand information and deal with problems. In the end, that will help you to study smarter, and not necessarily harder!
