I believe everyone should take this course. It's been a big eye-opener for me. I wish this course existed before I started school. It helped me make sense of how the brain works and why I'm studying or learning anything at all.
If only I had understood the principles and techniques in this course, I would have responded much better and would have learned more effectively both in academic and non-academic settings. I feel like this course is not just about learning but about living your fullest potential.
I have deep respect and admiration for Professors Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski for their generosity in sharing what they know in order to improve people's lives.
Take this course and apply its principles right away!
