I posted a thread in this forum with a link to a learning styles quiz. If you stay and explore the website there are study tips given based on your learning style.

I learn best through physically doing something. I think with the ADD it helps when you are learning something new to involve all of your senses, or as many as you can. I found that instead of just reading something I need to study I also write it down, I visual the concept, then I draw a picture. When I read a text book I always write as I'm reading because I feel as if somehow I am more involved in my studying because I am doing something physical. But sometimes that isn't enough because it will become mechanical and my mind will drift elsewhere as I'm reading and writing. If I set a goal for my self or a time limit on each chapter in order to stay on task this helps too.
