Excellent resource - I did not think test 3 came at the right stage and lecture 2 reflected the tile. But overall really useful

not sure why i was asked questions on an early section about information that was only give throughout all the slides- i had printed out all the slides at the start but was looking at them in order. when i attempted section 6 (i think) to answer the questions - it was asking me questions about section 11 of which i had not completed yet.

A fantastic and informative review. It is appreciated that course content is free and an important way to refresh and learn information on this topic. The lectures were in good detail.
