Did you know there are different types of learners? What type of learner are you? If you're the kind that reads entire video descriptions before watching a video, then...you're probably a pretty good one.

Plagues, wasps, poison oak… [Man with a green face, a wasp and a poison oak leaf appear]
Seriously, so many things.
So that means that studying ain't that bad!
Sure, it can take hours of time, and you're generally alone… [A clocking ticking fast]
…but better to study alone than with a plague-ridden wasp covered in poison oak, right? [Green wasp covered in leaves flies past]
But studying doesn't need to be a total drag. [Kid reading giant math book]
Before you get too deep into your studying, it's a good idea to know what kind of learner
There are four main types: verbal, visual, logical, and physical. [Coop pointing at a blackboard]
Verbal learners learn best through reading…
Though preferably not all at the same time…that sounds pretty confusing. [Man reading whilst speaking and writing]
Visual learners get the most out of visual stuff, like graphics or visual aids. [Arrow points to a girls eyes]
A big pile of numbers won't do much for them… [The girl is crushed by the pile of numbers]
…but turn that data into a graph, and they'll be your best friend for life. [Woman looking happy holding a graph]
Logical learners are focused on understanding the "why"s and "how"s of things.
They're the Sherlock Holmeses of study halls. [Man looking through a science book with a magnifying glass]
Physical learners, as their name suggests, learn through physical engagement.
That might mean role-playing, or building something with clay… [Two kids wearing costumes]
…basically, anything to get them out of that dreaded motionless chair.
If you know your learning style, it's a lot easier to shape your studying so that it fits
The default way of studying – that is, reading a whole bunch of stuff– is geared to verbal [Man with a pile of books in front of him]
Some people have all the luck… [A rainbow appears with a pot of gold at the end]
That said, no matter what your learning style happens to be, you can tailor your studying
to fit it like a glove!
For example, if you're a visual learner, try to rearrange some of the information you're
studying into a graph. [Woman drawing a graph on a whiteboard]
You'll not only retain more information, but you'll also get a free graph, and who'd say
no to that?
It's also a good idea to know whether you study best alone or in groups. [Students doing group work in a library]
Although some people love studying with others, some people prefer the lone-wolf approach. [Boy sat on his own studying]
And that's fine with us.
All that howling gets distracting after a while… [Wolf howling at the moon]
No matter what learning style you gravitate towards, there are a whole bunch of general
study rules that apply to everyone: be prepared, don't cram, organize your time, don't get
distracted, and be refreshed.
In short, if you start studying early, and keep a good sense of control over your time [Girl looking happy while she writes notes]
and your attention, studying doesn't have to be that bad. [Clock with a smile appears]
Even if you're studying with this guy…
…maybe you could take him to the doctor or something…. [Green wasp appears]
