It's mostly based on book information. The online model seemed obsolete when it comes to the tests.

You must read the text because the tests are based upon the text and not the slides that are posted online

The course was fun, and the textbook and information are well chosen. however, the answers tend to be incorrect on the exams and I always need to double check with the course people. It is a little tedious.

I felt I learned more from this course rather than a traditional one. Plus, I was able to do the course on my own schedule.
