Not as good as the other two courses in the specialization. Less assignments and shorter/briefer videos. Nevertheless a good course.

Delivery is somewhat linear and tedious. The content is useful though.

more details about contracts with an example for the drone case or electric car would be very helpful, just to have a wider idea of how to truly evaluate and utilize such documents.

also a brief introduction to agile practices would have been great since pmbok 6th ed. comes with it.
