What is your learning style? A learning style is the way that you are learning. Assess your own prefer learning style will help you learn best.
There are several types of learning style, but it can be mainly divided into three categories: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (or tactile). A visual learner learn by using visual memory, such as watching a lecture, they learn best through eyes and may feel hard to concentrate while listening the lecture. However, An auditory learner would rather listen to things than see them, read content aloud will also helped. A kinesthetic learner learns and remembers things through a hands-on approach. Actually doing a physical movement can be the easiest way for them to learn.
Everyone are different at his or her strengths, thus everyone processes and learns in different ways. To find out what type of learning style that fit my characteristic, I filled up a questionnaire in(EducationPlanner.org) and got a result showing on below image.
Base on what I used to do while studying before, I tend to be not only an auditory or visual learner, but also a Kinesthetic learner. For instance, study a drawing technique, I will became familiar with it through practicing drawing on paper, but before that I will learn through reading book and get some tips from teacher too.
So, for my personal opinion, whatever learning style you have, just being active more than passive as learning, controlling over the learning processes. And at last, processing things repetitively will firm your knowledge.
