Which style(s) do you prefer?
It's important to be aware of your style, knowledge, skills, and attitudes to the text you are about to read.
Reflect on the following 4 areas before starting to read:
1. Learning Style: What is my personal learning style and how can I use my style to help me read better?
You can determine your own learning style by using a free on-line assessment tool, such as:
2. Background knowledge/schema: How much background knowledge do I have of the topic?
3. Attitude: What is my attitude to the reading? e.g. Do I feel motivated? Do I feel like putting it off?
4. Concentration and focusing: How well will I be able to concentrate and focus on the reading?
