Sixty per cent on solar cells, forty per cent on fuel cells and batteries. The course contains solid material. You can learn from it, but probably only if you have a basic understanding of the science to begin with and are a pretty independent learner. Assignment format is exclusively plug numbers into a formula, so you have to build your understanding directly from the videos. The course could really use a textbook. But I am getting what I want from the course.
