So there are eight different learning styles or "Multiple Intelligences"
Your can figure out your intelligence by using your own traits or preferences
Verbal-Linguistic Learners are those who can hear something and remember.
Musical Learners can remember anything with a beat or rythm behind it
Logical-Mathematical Learners are organized and excel at seeing patterns and analyzing data.
Visual-Spacial learners enjoy drawing as well as charts and tables, and may use color to organize

Intrapersonal learners are quiet and contained, they see deeper meaning in most things.

In order to study, it might help for
Verbal-Linguistic learners to write down any questions the teacher asks, and go over notes by making marks by important topics.

Bodily-Kinesthetic learners to act out and move while studying, and highlight important note topics.
Visual-Spatial learners to draw diagrams and charts about materials.
Interpersonal learners to study with others in a group who will help to strengthen your knowledge.
Intrapersonal Learners to create your own test and apply subjects to real-world problems.
Musical Learners to write a song about the material or put a simple beat behind it.
Naturalistic Learners to group the subjects you need to study and find connections.
So now that you've learned to study more effectively
when your next test comes along
