Apply yourself to these terms and concepts and you will gain knowledge that is presented in a very understandable way. Watch and rewatch the course videos and I promise it will all start making sense!

This course was more intensive than the first one, but felt a little more hands-on. I am excited to see how the next course goes. I do feel I learned quite a bit in this course and it was challenging.

Hard. You need to take notes and go at your own pace or you will struggle with the quizzes and understanding the fundamentals.

Now that was a pretty good course. The instructor seemed to know what he was talking about and the lessons weren't exhaustive

Good courses with nice explanation. The knowledge is quite in detail, so it might be better to read few books for supplement.
