Essential study strategies specifically for visual learners. The goal of any visual learner’s study or homework session is to create images for the content you are learning. Images can be formed on paper, whiteboards, and even in your head. Visual learners are usually able to also recall images of a textbook page they read. Think you might be a visual learner?
