Changes and or additions to current strategies will only strengthen them so that less time will be needed to study. Time spent in class or learning will be time better spent when one can focus on learning strategies that are identified as their strengths. “Learning and retaining information may be increased by up to 90% when all three learning styles are incorporated into a teaching strategy”(LeCroy, 2009, pg
