It depends on what type of person you are. I am more into visual, my brother-in-law is more into words. I can read something and if I do it step by step I can get it done, but by seeing it I get better retention of the process and am able to repeat the process if I watch it. My brother-in-law will get it better by the words. Both of us use both books and video, and get best results if using both. Sometimes it's not an either or, but just which is available and which gets that slightyly better results.

I like to watch educational movie not reading. Reading makes me tired and boring. If we watch educational movie which contains picture and well procedure means we can able to do well in tests or exams.I have collected many Encyclopedia CD`s which are very useful.

I prefer reading....but if you compare the two i feel learning by watching is more effective as you grab things faster and you never forget things which you see...
