This class was tough.
This course introduces a wide variety of topics and theories regarding Cognitive Science. The topics discussed are abstract and intriguing. Very few courses I have taken have so immediately opened up such a large world of unconsidered possibilities regarding how we think about the mind. Regardless of intended area of study, this course is a great opportunity to learn how to think differently about abstract problems and possibilities.
The greatest thing about this course is the variety of perspectives that are discussed. I've learned about different theories of mind, psycholinguistics, robotics, a bit of cognitive psychology and perception, and the theories of very influential thinkers including Chomsky, Grise and Marr.

Advice for students:
I would suggest this course to anyone, particularly because you're exposed very quickly to a lot of different ways of thinking. The most helpful thing to do if you decide to take it, is to read the material, closely. That's about it! If you read and understand the theories, you'll do fine.
