Curso muito bom! Ajuda a entender melhor o funcionamento do cérebro no processo de aprendizagem além de fornecer importantes técnicas que auxiliam não só no aprendizado mais eficiente como a manter o foco.

Estou muitíssima feliz com o curso, possui um ótimo material e excelentes professores! Aprendi muito! Com certeza valeu a pena! Obrigada a todos que tornaram o curso possível e maravilhoso!

Excepcional. Todo aluno deveria tomar conhecimento do assunto tratado.

Técnicas aplicáveis no cotidiano. Ideias simples, mas que melhoram e muito o aprender.
