Learning Styles Paper
The VARK is a questionnaire that, when completed, will allow a person to view how they learn best, based on the answers they provided. VARK stands for visual, aural, read/write, and kinesthetic.

This might involve describing what I learned to a friend, taking notes or drawing a mind map. By learning in more than one way, I am further pounding the knowledge in my mind. According to research, the more regions of the brain that store data about a subject, the more interconnection there is. This means I will have more opportunities to pull up all of those related bits of data from their multiple storage areas in response to a single cue. This cross-referencing of data will help me learn, rather than just memorizing it.
Since school is a full-time job. And managing your time is important. I will cut back my days, so that I might dedicate more time in doing my studies. I will spread my course work out over the week. Suppose, I decide to study Sunday through Thursday evenings, taking Fridays and Saturdays off (from studying, that is). I will also concentrate on taking better, more detailed notes. This will help me for when I take my at home exams or studying for the finals.
Now that I have a better understanding of what types of study habits work best for me. I now feel more confident in passing all of my classes with nothing lower than a “B.”
