Very Good, But Audio Only

This course was absolutely incredible. I really learned a lot from it, and it is easy to understand the subject, even for a beginner. A lot of this is due to the teacher; Marianne Talbot. She is incredible, very easy to understand, enjoyable to listen to and very passionate about what she is teaching.
The only problem is that it is audio only (a video version is available, but this is the audio one) and a few times she refers to something she has written down, presumably on a blackboard. Thankfully the slides she uses are included, so often after a little guessing, you can figure out what she is saying. It happens very rarely, but is worth a mention, and is the reason I rated 4/5 instead of 5/5.
I recommend this course highly to anyone interested in the subject.
