It was an exceptional course with lots to take away from. It taught basic building blocks of business writing and then built upon it which provided a great way to self learn the content of the course.

Thank you for creating this course, I found it helpful. But I did not like the format where 3 people were talking. I feel the peer review section is a little disorganized as well. My honors distinction is stuck because it is not reaching to the other students automatically.

The course is well structured and gives highly useful basics for business writing. However, for more experienced writers, this course falls a bit too short.

The topic is so amusing, But the dialogues between the instructors are not suitable and break the mind thought.

I did not complete this course as I found it more fluff than substance. It is ironic how much time of my time was wasted by repeatedly tell me to not waste my readers time. Perhaps the creators of the specialization, that this course is apart of, should spend less time talking about what they are going to teach and actually teach the components of the classes.
