This course was just about perfect, with an upbeat style aimed at young people that can also be enjoyed by adults of any age. Engaging videos, enjoyable exercises, and thoughtful discussion topics were excellently presented. It introduces young people to many helpful learning techniques that will help them throughout their lives.
I did find one aspect of the course quite distracting, and in a course about learning, very irritating. The font used in the video slides used a combination of upper and lower case letters. For example, How to SuCCeeD in SChool Without SPenDing all YouR Time StuDying. It's not quite this distracting because in the videos all the letters are the same height, but because D faces the opposite way to d, my left-handed brain had to take a second look many times. As a child, I had a lot of trouble distinguishing between b and d, 3 and E, and s and z. As for N, which way did it face?
This aspect was a huge disappointment for me. Young readers who might be struggling with reading need the learning materials to be correct.
Because everything else about this course was excellent, I have still rated it 4 stars. I'll probably recommend it to my grandchildren in a few years when they are old enough.
