This questionnaire will help you to discover the way you learn best: visual, audio or practical. You may show a strong preference for one learning style and, if so, you can become a more effective learner by developing the alternative styles.
• There are no right or wrong answers and there are no trick questions.
• You can take as long as you need to complete the questionnaire. (It will probably take between 10 and 30 minutes.)
• Answer all the questions to get the best results.
• All answers are “Yes” or “No”. Circle just one answer per question.
• If you want to answer “Sometimes” think about whether you agree more than disagree with the statement and then answer “Yes” or “No”.
• To get the best results honesty is very important.
