Aim: Aim of the study is to know the preference of verbal vs visual learning among dental students.
Objective: To know whether verbal or visual learning is preferred among dental students.
Background: A number of different models have been proposed to explain these varying learning styles. Among those styles visual and verbal is a style of learning. Visual learners remember best what they see: pictures, diagrams, flow charts, time lines, films, and demonstrations and they tend to be spatial, or relate to, and have an eye for, size and space. They must learn to take intensive notes, because they tend to forget spoken words and ideas. Verbal learners get more out of words: written and spoken explanations and often they retain the information given through repetition when they discuss or explain the material to others.
Reason: The purpose of our study here was to know whether the dental students prefer verbal or visual learning and to know which is more comfort to them.
