Every module will include readings, videos, and a quiz to help make sure you understand the material and concepts that are studied.

Very well planed but the most indicated reading is an expensive book. Formulas might be better presented in the slides.

Video editing was slipshod; quiz questions were worded poorly and of questionable psychometric validity
