Have a question about this course?
I absolutely loved it and have learnt a great deal while strengthening my understanding of other principles
I liked learning new methods of how to approach different kinds of questions, I also liked the live tutorial of the answer so I could see where I went wrong. The teacher was willing to re-explain topics if someone was struggling and I appreciated that
