Nancy Edwards completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Alison Cooper presented the material in a concise, understandable and interesting manner. She is a terrific instructor, and that is one of the reasons I also took the Parkinson's course that she presented. I look forward to other courses she may offer.
