Problems and strength

I find the course to be easy to understand. However, the program is not stable and crashes frequently. If the stability problem is fixed, it would be worth using. However, in the present form, it would be better to find a different program

Entertaining lessons

Combines short text sessions with graphics and then short talks and a few problems. Tutorials are provided if you are having challenges with the problems. A lot more enjoyable then even the dummies books.

Very well done

Very well done. However, many more of the end chapter problems should have hints/solutions provided on request. Fix this and I will bump up to five stars.
