    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It lays the foundation for many of the upcoming courses in the Cognitive Science program, such as CGSC 2001, as well as many PHIL courses, such as PHIL 1301. It's very easy to follow, which makes it a great elective for engineering students. As long as you pay attention to the lectures, you'll definitely score well on the multiple choice exams!

    Course highlights:

    Davies goes through the course as though he's giving a tour of the Cog Sci program. He touches on each aspect of Cognitive Science, including linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and computer science (artificial intelligence). If you're in first year of Cog Sci, definitely take this course, because you'll understand what each of your other courses are trying to get across to you. I learned a lot about how computer science applies to cognitive science, and the fact that many of these disciplines are intertwined. Definitely take this course if you want to learn more about the field of cognitive science in general.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't worry if you don't far as well in one part of the course as you do in another. There's usually a written component which actually brings people's grades up. Make sure to pay attention to his lectures, because he does a good job of expanding on the lecture slides. He definitely includes stuff that he's said in his lectures but hasn't directly written on the slides. That being said, he isn't a difficult test-developer, and the questions on the multiple choice are pretty easy to figure out.
