    The course definitely gave closer attention to details and with the help of studies and real-life cases it made thinking and applying the knowledge gained easier to test and effective.

    Enjoyed the course with a number of opportunities where I had to think. This is good as you do want courses to stretch your mind. This could have been enhanced by mentor input since it did seem to be rather hidden and also by more student interaction. The materials were excellent and well put together.
