Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg B from The course chapters are a proper length - short enough to not get overwhelmed and to keep the student engaged. I especially like that the text (written) is shown for all videos. I like to follow along by text and go back when needed. The course material is organized well and the quizzes are very helpful in preparing for the final quiz.
