Yes there are such things as study styles and believe it or not, knowing and working to your study style actually does help. Why not give it a try?
Research suggests that there are three types of learners; Auditory Learners, Visual Learners and Tactile Learners. The minority are Tactile Learners as we follow the conventional way or writing excessive lines until our brain is imprinted for life.
Auditory Learners – Learn by listening. If you’re an auditory learner you could try reading your notes aloud and discussing them with other people. You might like to record key points and play them back to yourself at a later date.
Visual Learners – Learn by seeing. If you’re a visual learner you could use colours in your notes and draw diagrams to help represent key points. Another tip is to try and remember some ideas as images.
Tactile Learners – Learn by doing. If you’re a tactile learner you could use methods like role-playing or building models to revise key points.
