Excellent course. needs a bit organisation and interactivity. Some quiz questions are tricky and not included in the videos and the reference material. Overall very enjoyable and interesting course. Thanks

Not impressed. It consisted merely of someone sitting talking with no interaction and very little demonstration. Equations were thrown in with negligible explanation such that their relevance was not obvious. There was no discussion with each presentation but only at the end so no chance to properly interact.

Excellent course! Professor Olchak explained the topics clearly and in a very professional way. Particle Phyisics may seem hard to understand, but this course helped me a lot. The lessons taught very updated knowledge on the subject.
