I wish they would have made it clear that the book is the main source of the information. I did three sections just using the videos. Some of the stats on the test did not match what was in the book. Overall the class was just reading the text book and taking tests.

I like the self-motivation factor, however I would've liked additional help reviewing for the exams. I found a few of the questions were more in depth conceptual interpretations of basic facts discussed in the topic presentations.

I liked that I could finish the class as quickly as I was comfortable with, and take the quizes and exams on my own time when I felt ready

I really enjoyed the self-paced aspect of this course. I am on a constant time crunch so it was nice to be able to get things done when I had the down time.
