What's the best way for you to learn? Do you absorb more information from a lecture than a book? Would you rather watch a demonstration or do it yourself? Educators agree that people learn in different ways, including auditory (hear it), kinesthetic (do it), and visual (see it). Several "tests" have been designed to evaluate a person's learning style, such as the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT), Felder's Index of Learning Styles, and Kolb's Learning Style Inventory. You can take a quick inventory of your learning style by connecting to www.howtolearn.com/personal.html
