    Overall i thought it was a good course. Good information.
    I felt that the questions on the practical were worded very vaguely. I had to ask the professors what they were
    looking for. We used a tool that i have never used before and they introduced a “timeline” in a question.. and after contacting the company
    the tool doesn’t support that. But, other than that.. it was a good course and lots of information!
