Very informative with extensive materials and an awesome professor. Highly recommended, the only thing better would be regular updates t some of the charts used and taking it in person.

Really educational, the only problem is that some of the quiz question are outdated

its a really usefull course and it gives a lot of sites with good information.

Sachs was an entertaining professor and the lectures where informative. He really does illustrate and discuss the different factors that may effect an area's development process.
