Many learners and students struggle with the process of learning and studying. Each learner has a different learning style, and in order to successfully study for any subject, the learner needs to know how to study in such a way that his or her learning style is actively stimulated and the process of acquiring knowledge is achieving optimal success. Learners are assessed to determine their specific learning style, and thereafter they are taught the metacognitive techniques and tools that will cater to their particular learning styles and achieve optimal academic and scholastic success. Study strategies are vital to structuring the learning process and facilitate organisation and meta-cognition.
