I am extremely new to user experience (rising sophomore). I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me tips on where to start and how to grow my understanding in preparation for the UX world. I am interested in research as well as design (also very new to me).
First up, I’d recommend reading this article (and watching the video).
If you have a budget, then reading this book would be hugely valuable (you will have received a discount voucher by email when you signed up here).
I imagine you have some specific questions, so feel free to ask those here also.
