Take My Poll

So, now that I'm finishing up my third book, I'm just curious. What do you do when you want to learn something new? Do you buy a book and teach yourself? Or are you more likely to sign up for a class, craving the interaction and the social element? Do you surf the web for ideas, or would you rather consult with your favorite magazine's editorial staff? Or are you like me--yes to all of the above? Please take my survey and let me know how you like to learn...


  1. When I want to learn something new I almost always go to the web today. The majority of the time that is all I need to do to get what I needed.

    If I need something beyond that I would get the book. Factors in that are around how often I may need to keep referring to the same material or if a book is just going to give a much more in depth lesson than what can be found on the web.

    A How To book is far more likely to be bought than relying on the web. For example - I bought a few Home Depot HowTo books. There are many topics and they have such great steps and pictures. Its real handy to have those in a book that you can walk around with.

  2. Thanks for commenting. I'm with you -- the web is easy to look things up and do some quick research,but when I really want to learn something I turn to a how-to book, also.
