Utilizing the latest discoveries in neuroscience, this course provides students with the tools to tackle a plethora of obstacles encountered when learning a new and/or difficult subject. The lectures are direct, short, sweet and easy to understand. Barbara Oakley's corny humor is refreshing and absurd; so not only will students retain the information, they'll actually enjoy every lesson. The assignments and assessments are structured around the same principles taught in the lectures so students can begin practicing the methods they've learned immediately. Even if all you can do is audit, this is a class worth taking.
