Despite not being very fond of areas such as human-computer interaction, I found this course to be well-presented and useful. Definitely a necessity for anyone planning on building secure software.

This course have very little to do with actual security. Most of the time you will hear about how to design applications, and what is a good design policy.

This is the first course that will only let you grade the quiz if you purchase the course. Highly disappointed...

Too much attention is paid to Usability, there is no attention to the technical side of the question.

This is way too basic. It almost has nothing to do with cybersecurity and especially "pentesting".
