Learning new material is always a challenge, but a great way to lessen that challenge is to get a handle on how the brain works and make more effective use of it. There are two different sides of the learning coin, as I like to think of it: On one side you have understanding, and on the other side you have recall.

Everybody learns through sensory perception such as touch, sight, hearing, taste, and feeling etc. However, generally we have a preference for absorbing and retrieving information in one of these ways.
