According to the textbook Focus on Community College Success "a learning style is the characteristic and preferred way one takes in and interacts with information, and the way one responds to the learning environment."
Know thyself! For example:
Understanding how you learn can boost your success in school and in your chosen career. You can choose study strategies that fit your learning styles or know when you will need to spend extra time and effort because the learning environment is not structured in a way most comfortable for you.
