I found the course was streamlined with good content and resources. I\'m glad the quizzes aren\'t against a timer as I am one of those that needs to read a question over and over again as I process it so it was good not to have the added pressure of a timer! I think the questions were a good level of \'challenge\' with some on the easier side and some on the harder side so overall I think a good technical balance in my experience.
