Wow. What an informative course!! Although mostly in Russian, it is in Russian style. No nonsense. One can learn quite a lot if patient enough to learn via caption. Highly recommended.

By DSJun 26th 2017

Too much fundamental information is available, very good for beginners as well as those who have experiences, at least once learn from this.
