What people are saying

According to other learners, here's what you need to know

besides doing advertisement in one review

All it teaches is common knowledge, besides doing advertisement for certain software and book labels.

margins… up till in one review

Writing in the margins… up till now I have never challenged or asked the writer any questions.

musical cartoon introduction in one review

In addition, some subtitles are not in sync with the video, and every video has a long, nearly useless (though cute) musical cartoon introduction that you just have to fast forward to get through, which I feel is a waste of my time and makes the amount of video content time this course is estimated as having misleading.

challenged or asked in one review

contain any worthwhile in one review

I dropped the course after watching all videos of the first and some of the second week since it doesn't seem to contain any worthwhile information.

content needs improvement in one review

The information in this course is good, but the tests and quizzes are a mess, and the video content needs improvement.
