I am a non-specialist taking this course simply for interest, and so have not done an upgrade. Nevertheless it has been extremely interesting, both in the lectures by Professor Ellen Hillbom and in the freely available PDF course material. The presentation is unspectacular, but that puts a better emphasis on understanding the contents covered - less dazzling viewing but more thinking. I feel I have learned a lot and am very grateful to Lund University for making this course available to the public through Coursera.

The content is very good, the info it uses is vast and full of empyrical examples. The only thing I would change is the book recommendation, the optional one, which I've found to be very similar to the lectures given by professor Hilbom.
