The pedagogy is so interactive and interesting that very often, I found myself looking forward to the sessions, something that I never experienced in my undergraduate studies. Sometimes very long sessions would just pass by, and I wouldn’t even notice. Moreover, I remembered the concepts so well that I did not have to study separately for the exams. The answers would just feel intuitive.”
