TIPS FOR STUDYING FOR AUDITORY LEARNERS
Work in quiet areas to reduce distractions, avoiding areas with conversation, music, and television.
Sit away from doors or windows where noises may enter the classroom.
Attend lectures and tutorials regularly
Use mnemonics, rhymes, jingles, and auditory repetition through tape recording to improve memory.
Practice verbal interaction to improve motivation and self-monitoring.
Use tape recorders to document lectures and for reading materials.
Remember to examine illustrations in textbooks and convert them into verbal descriptions.
Read the directions for tests or assignments aloud, or have someone read them to you, especially if the directions are long and complicated.
Remind yourself to review details.
Use verbal brainstorming and tape recording writing and proofing.
Leave spaces in your lecture notes for later recall and 'filing'. Expand your notes by talking with others and collecting notes from the textbook.
Read your notes aloud.
Practice writing your answers using old exams and speak your answers.
