This has helped me to understand how to study more than anything else

Buen curso, brinda herramientas para facilitar el aprendizaje en cualquier asignatura y explica de manera sencilla cómo funciona nuestro cerebro.

very goof materiel , and i learn many thing

el curso tiene herramientas valiosas, requiere adquirir el hábito a traves de concentraciones continuas, entre las que destaco para la elaboración de metáforas y analogías, así como desarrollar la práctica en el uso del palacio de la memoria. gracias a los entrevistados que proporcionaron sus experiencias y sus muy importantes técnicas de estudio. Una vez más agradesco a la Dra. oakley y al Dr Sejnowski.
