TOP REVIEWS FROM BIG HISTORY - FROM THE BIG BANG UNTIL TODAY
Very exciting topics, interesting lectures, thorough discussions. I couldn't stop listening and was even a bit sad when the course was over. One of the best history courses I've taken, for sure.
Everyone should do this course! The ongoing assignment is challenging but well worth the effort - it will open your eyes to connections that you may never have thought about.
I got to know a lot about this course and I am happy that I invested my time in learning this course.... Thanks to Coursera and their excellent teaching faculties....!!
Excellent course. Great perspective and very factual, logical and illuminating. The exercises were more on applicability rather than memorization which is the better way.
