I took this course and it was very well formulated with good examples, quiz, lab exercises to have hands on experience...

Worth for the cost and certificate gained by end of the course if you cross 70% above on all Quiz/Labs/Surveys.

I loved taking this course and recommend folks to take too if interested..
