There are a lot of things you can be doing to prepare yourself to learn UX Design with DevMountain. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Get a taste for the design technologies you'll be using like Sketch, and practice! There are a lot of different resources students have used in the past to start learning: www.lynda.com, http://blog.usabilla.com/12-of-the-best-online-ux-resources/, https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLnpHn493BHE6UIsdKYlS5zu-ZYvx22CS You may even start reading "The Design of Everyday Things" by Don Norman
  2. More important than understanding how everything works, is knowing that you can be passionate about it. A passion for the work makes all the difference in being able to focus and commit to what it takes to be a successful designer.
  3. Make arrangements to dedicate the necessary time for the course. Full-time Immersive courses are made up of 40 to 60 hours of required pre-course work (readings and exercises that need to be completed before class starts) 40 class hours/week, and 10 to 20 hours outside of class on project work and practice. After hours courses are made up of 30 to 40 hours of required pre-course work, 11 class hours/week, and between 10 and 20 hours outside of class for project work and practice.
