    I guess you get what you pay for, the course was littered with grammatical errors and was rather disappointing. I am extremely glad I didn’t pay the original listed price. The content was largely in line with other books and online educational sources I have read, but I think the course should be reviewed by the supplier and either withdrawn or errors corrected.
