What impact does knowing your learning style have on your law school performance?
What is VARK? VARK is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their learning preferences. These preferences are about the ways that they want to take-in and give-out information.
What is a learning style? A learning style has 18+ dimensions (preferences for temperature, light, food intake, biorhythms, working with others, deep and surface approaches). VARK is about one preference – your preference for taking in, and putting out information in a learning context.
Why should you determine what your learning style is? A learning style influences how you understand and process information best. Determining what type of learner you are earlier can influence how you learn best (aka how you study best!).
What types of learners are there? There are four types of learners. Keep in mind that you may find that you are a multi modal learner, learning in multiple styles.
Please take the VARK test at this link to discover what your learning style is: http://www.vark-learn.com/english/index.asp and how you should apply that information to your own study techniques.
