I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The course itself covers everything very well from the basics through to more intermediate ideas and this definitely covers the fundamentals in a thorough way. I took the course to reinforce my current knowledge and to provide a solid knowledge base to move forward so it was a great exercise and would recommend it
