    Purvaash Shankar completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    I took this to revise the basics of Quantum Mechanics. This is an excellent course but is in par with MITx - 8.04x, 8.05x, 8.06x what I liked the most in this course that we had four sessions, where there was an online chat with the instructor, which was fruitful.
