This course provided very useful practices for learning, and some truly wonderful insights on how learning actually works. Dr. Oakley's lectures are very engaging and make sure that key points are driven home. While I had already been intuitively using some of the tips provided here, it is reassuring to note that they are also backed by research. Also, the course helped to bring out some of the blind spots in my learning efforts. I am now convinced that practice and perseverance are essential for mastery beyond mere comprehension. While I could not study the companion book "Mind for Numbers" in parallel to the course since I could not get hold of the book in time, I have the book now and am very sure that I must go through it to reinforce what I have learnt through the lectures, and make it stick. Thank you very much for such a wonderful course!
