very easy
by Abel F. on February 21, 2024
fantabulous!
by Jose L. on February 21, 2024
I liked learning about Art History, good course.
by Sebastien J. on February 21, 2024
This course shows me how all the project Manager can improve their leadership skills and management.
by Raul B. on February 20, 2024
It had some typos in the material. If you already know some things related to this course, it should be really easy. The material itself seems maybe too easy. I don't think you need to know everything in the material, as long as you peruse it at your own convenience you should be okay.
by Rafael R. on February 20, 2024
The course is harder than expected; beware of the math.
by Maya T. on February 20, 2024
This class was easy and short.
by Adam D. on February 20, 2024
Very informative but some answers were marked incorrect that came right from the textbook.
