Abstract : There has been a great deal of work in human problem solving since the landmark publication of Newell and Simon's Human Problem Solving in 1972. After reviewing the 1972 theory and the subsequent additions to it that model practice effects and expert-level problem solving, this tutorial presents 19 basic findings that seem to capture much of the recent experimental work in the field.
