Description

Academic success often entails managing and mastering multiple courses covering a variety of topics, each with their own unique requirements. However, what study methods are effective versus ineffective, and why? For example, is learning based on the amount of time a student spends studying? Is highlighting an effective method of learning? Is it better to study by reviewing notes or testing oneself? How will you know if a study tip you read on the internet will really help you learn? Course poses questions about studying and discuss the answers that have been uncovered through scientific research on human memory. May be repeated for credit.
