Sue
DETAILS
"I want as many details as possible, whether or not I need them right now. I like books that are organized and well-written. Pictures are helpful, but I learn best thorough written instruction. I collect reference books, frequently using the table of contents and index to locate what I need."
Details
Debbi
HANDS-ON
"I'm a hands-on learner who wants relevance and real-life examples. I enjoy tips and tools that I can use. I like to see the end result before starting an activity. I like a balance of pictures and concise written instructions."
Details
Denise
VISUAL
"I'm a visual learner who likes explicit pictures and step-by-step instructions. I don't have the patience to read text-heavy references. I'm looking for immediate results. I don't want to be inundated with information I don't need."
