Learn and be able to execute key, evidence-based techniques for smarter studying
Understand foundational biology to the level of a top-achieving first-year university student

The amount of depth and detail this course goes into is amazing. Being exposed to the entire course material before the semester even starts is such a game-changer. I wish I had this last year when I was a first-year, especially for this paper because of the ginormous amount of content. A much better teacher than the lecturers which says a lot about the quality of this course 🙂
