I really enjoyed it

I really enjoyed it - great content packed in very good form: videos are short (1-2min per topic) and to the point, so you can easily go back; quizzes let you test your knowledge along the way; nice handouts help to review key items when needed. Plus the good e-learning support team is extremely responsive.
