I already took an undergrad class about AI.

We used AIMA as a reference and CS 188 course materials from UC Berkeley.

My issue with learning is that we took a very shallow approach to learning about it. My Professor essentially flew through slide after slide(CS 188).

I tried reading AIMA but its taking a lot of time and I am not getting a deeper understanding. My approach to reading AIMA might be wrong. This is the first class in my life that I had to put so much effort in. I think there is something wrong fundamentally with how I am approaching this book and this subject. Can anyone suggest me a way to tackle this issue as I am super frustrated.

I am open to different approaches.

Thanks for taking the time to read and reply.
