Learning Styles: What They Are and Why They’re Important
Warning: This book is good for you. Uh-oh. We know what it means when something is called “good for you.” Either it tastes bad, or it’s boring. But don’t put the book down yet. Sure, the most important feature of this book is that it can help you to be a better student. But other points about this book make it worth reading.
For one thing, it’s easy to read. It was written for you to enjoy, as well as to learn how to use your study time more effectively. This book was written with the goal of being informative but not dull. Sometimes it’s even funny. There are cartoons and other illustrations along the way.
This book deals with every aspect of studying. It explains how to prepare, how to take full advantage of class time, and how to make the most of homework and assignments. It even covers little details that can make a big difference—like eating the right foods before studying, choosing the right classroom seat, and overcoming shyness in class (if that’s a problem).
One section of this book gives valuable tips on how to take advantage of a computer—and how to avoid computer disasters, too. These days, knowing about computers has become more important than ever.
Finally, as you’ll find out in a few pages, this book has valuable lessons for everyone, regardless of how you’re doing in school and what you expect your future to hold.
