,,I have already studied this in my academics, so this was a good revision for me. It is definitely a good course for beginners. If I was a beginner I would have expected more detailed explanation with some solved examples when it came to set up slack and hold slack concepts as they might be very confusing to beginners. Overall this is satisfactory in my opinion."
