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.

Great course going into important details on cost and budgeting. I really like the video portion which gives real-world examples that help reinforce and bring the concepts to an everyday audience.

Some of the videos are helpful but a lot of the information is just copied from the PMBOK and could use more explanation.

This a well paced class which does a good job of breaking down the fundamentals of project management cost accounting.

The course is good overall, but material and content is a bit old. Would be perfect if they are renewed.

I think the Course touches the basis of Budgeting and scheduling but feels light on the information.

More videos/ audio sessions instead of slides would have been better for understanding the concepts.

I don't really like the format. I want lectures from the instructor, not animation and slides.

Much lighter than the introduction, leaves you wanting more... Maybe that's the plan?

Slightly better than the last course. Still very inaccessible language in my view.

too basic !!

Unforyunately all the information is rather basic, most of the knowledge provided is intuitively understandable. Didn't learn anything new. Probably the problem is that it really is super basic and may be useful for somebody who is doing 1-2 year of Bachelor's.
