    I spent most of my classroom hours reading fantasy novels then scanning books on my own to pass the tests. I like to see the end result first then go back and pick up the nuts and bolts that makes it work. I don't need laboured explanations in sequential order, when I encounter that I go daydreaming until they get to the end bit then tune back in. So yeah I guess I am visual/spatial. I hate being 'taught'.

    The most enjoyable course I've ever done was a practical arts course where a technique was demonstrated then we were set loose to tinker on our own and come up with the end result. Loved that style of learning.

    Hmmm, sound vaguely familiar, why I did well in technical drawings. As you said, I want the end picture first, and then I will drill down.

    Same with me except I either read the dictionary or history books. My teachers did not care because it didn't affect my grades and they always liked me. Hehe.

    You are dealing in the wrong units. A single university course will cover multiple concepts, and the process I outlined will apply to each one. I will attend lecture, read the chapter, read over my class notes, perhaps work though some problem sets. I might even be successful at the homework, but this will be using what I consider dumb, brute force techniques: follow the recipes in the book, get someone to explain how they do it. Then something will cause me to just "get it". Perhaps revisiting an earlier problem, or just looking at one with fresh eyes, or reading a different explanation. The sum total of what I have seen (I can't say "absorbed" yet) will come together, and then I will be explaining it to other people. That being said, the first thing I used to do when starting a new class is to read the syllabus end to end; and upon getting a new textbook, scanning the table of contents. Having that context makes me much more comfortable.

    That happened to me when I studied accounting. Almost the whole year I got bad grades and then suddenly I got it. Even the teacher was amazed, thinking there was no hope left for me.
    I think it had something to do with that end goal, I want to know what the end goal is. To justify why I am learning it. Where as the sequential guys would form their own opinion. I want to know what the end result is first before I start off.

    I'm a CPA and I swear I didn't really understand accounting until after I started studying for the CPA exam, AFTER college. The way it's taught in school is broken down by subjects. At least my professors didn't link how each class relates to each other. I did what I needed to do to pass and get decent grades, but once they put all the pricincples in one book, I learned those, and brought them down to the individual topics. I Aced that test.

    lol, you read the dictionary in class, too? Anyway, thread applies to me, too, and I commend OP for putting it more concisely than I ever can.

    Teachers who liked me were the ones who realized that lectures did nothing for me. In college, I just stopped going to them when it was an option, to no negative effect. In the event that learning it my own way outside of lecture doesn't work, going through the concept one-on-one with somebody is magic.

    Okay so that makes sense. How fast do you generally catch onto these concepts? Is it slow or fast?
