I enjoyed this course, the mix of the video presentations and the powerpoints are well done. The instructor does an excellent job. the 'bonus videos' and 'panelist interviews' are very good as well.

Some of the videos are helpful but a lot of the information is just copied from the PMBOK and could use more explanation.

Much lighter than the introduction, leaves you wanting more... Maybe that's the plan?
