Rated 3 out of 5 by from The final quiz had far more definitions than case studies. The course seems to place an emphasis on case studies. The gross majority of the final chapter consisted of case studies. Study definitions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The content is fine. The design is dreadful. Get ready for a sea of copy, paragraphs that go on forever, that wash across the page. Graphics and charts are nearly non-existent. It breaks ever design rule in the book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If you like to just read then this course is for you. Other courses had audio and animated slides that seemed to help me retain more and keep me more engaged. I'm hoping future courses have a bit more too them.
