by Jonathan completed this course, spending 7 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
unfortunately, this was false advertising. This course wasn't "free". You had to pay eventually. To add, I only took an exact clone of this course earlier. I was basically learning a repetition of stuff I already knew.
