I find this course to be the most useful in terms of practical application. Some of the previous courses felt a bit bogged down by the technical aspects, but I guess this may be unavoidable.

Very good material. It is interesting to create a case study.

It was challenging to find enough material from open sources which can help you built up the scenario.
