Learning How to Learn Book Notes 🗒
This is the notes I took when I am reading the book Learning How to Learn by Barbara Oakley and Terry Sejnowski. They will be continuously updated over time. All files can be downloaded as PDF version at my Google Drive folder.
There is also a course on Coursera. I would say that the contents in both are almost the same.
NOTE: PLEASE check the answers of problems in the Check Your Understanding section AFTER you thinking about it (or writing it down) on your own, OR it may cause the so-called “illusion of confidence (not good),” which you may learn in later chapters.
