I have to agree that not knowing your specific studying style leaves us at a disadvantage. In order to help you answer the question, you need to provide information on you distinct study style.

Outside of that, I would suggest highlighting the nuances of your style. Do you use music to block out other noise? Do you study at a specific time? How do you study?

I have always benefited by reviewing the material from the day's lecture. This way, you are not cramming and mastery is more certain.

Good preparation is the key to effective study and, in this case, determining what your learning style is (visual, kinaesthetic, aural, etc) and incidences where your applied techniques have worked for you will help you to make an effective individual plan. Someimes there are varied techniques across the learning style profiles which work for you. As a visual learner, I also benefit from recordings of text played on mp3 as a reinforcement. Everyone has different ways to work and learn - you just need to find yours!

If you can tell us more specifically what you consider your study style to be, we can give you more informed responses.  Perhaps describe for us how you typically study, and then we can give you some feedback about any advantages (and/or disadvantages) to that style of studying.

You can use your study style to your advantage by simply using it.  Whatever your study style is, it can be used to learn and prepare for your classes.  Determining your own study style is a very valuable asset.  Once you know how you learn best, you will be able to use that information to help you study and learn.  While the teacher cannot always tailor a lesson around your particular study style, you can tailor the knowledge given in class yourself.  It might be that you review your lessons in your own study style each night.  Or, it might be that you use your particular study style to help you prepare for tests and examinations.

This assignment requires your to do some self-analysis. When you are given the task to "study for the test" what do you do? Do you create practice tests? Do you only re-read your notes? Do you re-write your notes in a different format as a means to processing the information? Do you have someone else quiz you? Do you create flash cards? Once you really THINK about what do actually do when you "study" then you can determine how that study method helps you, and you can write about that. Remember that you need to discuss HOW/WHY that method suits you.

The purpose in determining your individual style of study would be to allow you to tailor your study time to fit that style, so as to maximize the impact of your studying. If you have discovered that you learn and retain information when you see it, you would do well to spend time creating flash cards, flow charts, using color-coded highlighting, writing post-it notes, whatever will feed your visual learning style. If you learn best when you hear information, you will use the audio version of your textbook off the internet when reviewing, you will read out loud and record your reading for later review, and so on.

It depends on your study style if you want specifics. I would say in general that just knowing what your style is gives you a big advantage.  For example, if you know that you remember best when you write things down, writing things down will help you learn better.

Well it depends on what study style you have. If you are a visual learner and learn by memorizing things as in if you are studying for a vocabulary test and see the words in your mind, you can use that to your advantage
