As in the other UCI Extension courses, this one have a good structure and a complete set of information that makes its simple to understand the basics of Schedule and Estimating in project management.

I enjoyed this course, the mix of the video presentations and the powerpoints are well done. The instructor does an excellent job. the 'bonus videos' and 'panelist interviews' are very good as well.

The course itself is good. However the lesson does not always make it clear what the topic for the week is. There is a lot of external reading that is recommend, which means buying additional books. I also miss real life learning. Having a case study to apply the learning to would be very helpful. Instead the course asks you to "think of a project you have done" and apply what you learned to that. The flash lessons are very helpful.

The talk was very general about the budgeting it did not get into the details of what to consider, we talked in general how to calculate budgets via 4 methodes but it was all theoretical. There was no excercise to help clear the ways of calculating, what factors to consider , how much of a padding should I add is it 10% 15% maybe 25% what is the appropriate amount. etc..
