Default Exam Prepwith Dr. Yvonne Chueh comments

Hello!

Would anyone who has taken Dr. Chueh's course be willing to share their thoughts on their experiences of the course? Did you find it worthwhile and if so, why?

Any and all comments are welcome.

Thank you.

Hi, I didn't take her course, but I did do one on one sessions with her weekly. I found Dr. Chueh to be outstanding. I went from getting a 0 on the exam to getting a 7. She was extremely helpful in me understanding the material and not worrying about memorizing everything. She was very accommodating to my schedule also. Highly recommend her!

If you don't mind sharing, how long were your 1-1 weekly sessions? 60 minutes?

I ask to get a better context in translating this experience to what she might do in a "classroom" setting.

Hi, sorry I didn't see this before. My sessions were 60 minutes, but if we were in the middle of solving a problem, they would go over about 10 minutes to complete it.

The way we structured the one-on-one sessions was I would send her about 4 or 5 problems I had issues solving, then she would go over step by step how to do so. A few times, I asked her to instead go over a topic (for example credibility) because I was struggling with it.
