In this webinar, you will learn about classical and operant conditioning, which are the tenets of Behaviorism, a frequently tested psychology theory and perspective. Classical and operant conditioning are often confused for one another in terms of terminology and methods, so join us as we go over the key similarities and differences

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Identify the type of conditioning relevant to a particular situation

  • Apply learning schedules to effect a behavioral outcome


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • Associative versus nonassociative learning

  • The two types of conditioning and the phases of conditioning

  • The different types of operant conditioning

  • The different types of learning schedules and how they affect acquisition and extinction


On the MCAT

  • Conditioning questions can get very wordy and convoluted. Make sure you break down the question bit by bit and look for keywords that can signal one type of conditioning over another

  • Conditioning appears on every test because it can easily be related to everyday human behavior


I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂

I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!

Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!

The wealth of information and sample questions are great.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
