I enjoyed this course a lot. The information was all new to me, but the teachers were informative and the quiz/test questions aligned perfectly with the video content.
It took me about 3 days, 7 hours each day. Save your Milestones and study those and take all the practice Milestones. You can complete classes quick, but you have to give the time. Listen to the recording while doing other things to complete quickly.
