I'm learning a LOT, and you don't have to take it quite as slowly as they suggest. But, it's nice that there's a manageable pace set out for you. Instructor and guests were great--relatable and clear.

Great introductory course. I learnt that a project manager is like a drummer on the band. He keeps a steady beat on the project and make sure everything is playing correctly.

Very well done and impeccably organized. I would like a way to download all lessons, lectures and documentation in a single PDF, but that is a minor quibble. Recommended.
