Question: “Most of us can think of times when we struggled to learn something. What was yours?” p. 7.
My Answer: Statistics. I can still see the instructor filling the blackboard with figures that meant absolutely nothing to me. And feeling the sinking feeling that I was overwhelmed. What did I do? I took the topics which the instructor was filling the blackboard with, found a book that clearly and plainly explained each topic, ignored the course text and the instructor, and managed to achieve a “C” on my exam.
