The feature is mis-named. Waze does not learn preferred routes, but your often-used destinations. It will pop-up with the "Are going home?" or "going to work?" messages for these frequented destinations.
Waze should always pick what it believes (mathematically) is the fastest or shortest route, depending on your settings. If, in your estimation, it doesn't, that means that there could be an error in the map somewhere along your preferred route, or there is a lack of correct
speed/traffic data for that route, or lack or correct
speed/traffic data on the route it is trying to send you on. If it isn't too far out of your way, and I've done this myself, take the suggested route a few times and Waze will collect and start to use that data in its routing decisions.
If both the routes are heavily populated by Waze users, then lack of data isn't likely the issue.
