A study plan helps you identify when to study, but knowing your learning style helps you identify how to study.
The human brain learns in several different ways and processes information through several different channels. For example, you learn through visual channels by seeing information (charts, graphs, diagrams, pictures, presentations), and you learn through auditory channels by hearing information (lectures, audio, discussions, video, explanations).
Learn more about your own learning style and find helpful strategies to incorporate into your study plan by visiting Know your Learning Style. You can complete free self-assessments and review online help sheets for tips and strategies.
