Course is good, but Instructor is too fast in explanation, and not always you could reach the point. Some quiz tests were not clear, but generally i liked it. To be honest it's my 1st experience with this provider, and i was sure that i will get certificate... My general quize score is 80%, but maybe i had misunderstood something with the certification procedure.

The material is great. I did learn quite a few new things. However, the videos are way too long, so much so, that you get detached from the content. There should be more quiz questions,intersecting these videos, and they should be more clear. Some options are marked false, even though they could also be considered correct. The questions are often general without specificity of the situation.
