I found that the course syllabus was well organized and contained very useful and informative exercises. The mix of practical exercises, textbook readings, and clinical assignments was well balanced and reinforced the objectives. The combination of syllabus, textbook, and AV content makes this course both challenging and enjoyable. It is one of the most professional, well organized, and informative courses available today.
