Excellent

The course is exellent for its quality. It is easy to understand and fun. With good examples. Use all possible teaching resources.

the good stuff

catchy videos, nice videos simple , easy to watch and follow, giving just enough information without many (boring?) details. In general is fun to watch and learn :)

the "could be a little better" stuff

I think that in-lesson quizes and in general the quizes could be a notch up in difficulty , and I don't that would hinder the whole experience of this course.

It has helped me regain confidence in my abilities and surface those hidden somewhere in the complex potential I possess. It was fun and a bit positively addictive, with useful information. Thanks a lot!
