Great Course and Explanations Review by TangoFoxtrot33
Rating
This is the second time that I have reviewed this course. The first time I gave it a low rating (1 star) because I was having trouble unzipping my downloads. I think it was all my fault. I have since reviewed some of the materials in the course and they are GREAT! So, I felt like I should submit a second review. (Posted on July 2, 2017)
