I used it to measure temperature changes in short periods of time. The temperature wasn't totally accurate but it measured the changes very fast so, considering the price,
the general performance of the sensor was pretty good.

As we can see in the picture, the pins connections are the following:

thermistor (1)>>Vcc ARDUINO
thermistor (2)>>Resistor and A0 ARDUINO
Resistor (1)>> Ground ARDUINO
Resistor(2)>> A0 ARDUINO
