What is Your Learning Style?

It is based upon the characteristics/behaviors that an individual uses in order to attain their optimal academic performance. We all learn in different ways and it is helpful to have an understanding of your personal learning style. This will allow you to assess your strengths and identify the strategies needed to compensate for your weaknesses. Hopefully, by taking the Learning Styles Inventory, you will have a better idea of the skills needed to become an even more effective student at Providence College.
