I loved this course. When I had issues support was awesome sauce. I really enjoyed the puns this instructor used to keep you from going off in a daze. I really wish I would have found Coursera sooner.

The course had some ups and downs, but it was a good challenge and I did it! I learned so much and I never knew I could do this kind of course. I have gained so much knowledge now from when I started.

Too fast and to get it better you will need to make a lot of notes and perform extra deep dives if you would like to understand it all.

It really covers a lot of concepts that you usually don't see in college. I really love it seeing, again and again, each of the videos.
