The class is taught and explained in such a real college life scenario. It's a must for anyone planning to; or attending college/university for higher education.

Anon partially completed this course.
I just watched some videos, specifically about studying/note-taking, and when they explained the cornell note taking thing they completely missed the point of it.

The left column is for clues/question where corresponding to the material on the right column, then you have to cover the right column and answer the questions like they were on a flashcard. I've only wathced a few videos and there's just a (imho) kinda big error, talking about something simple in a wrong way.
