Phenomenal course. Provides lots of information and ideas, but Professor Alex does a wonderful job of breaking it down into digestible parts. Also there are diagrams and notes on his "board" during each session that he uses to further enhance the learning experience. His knowledge of the subject matter is only surpassed by his passion for not just the subject; but, for perhaps what seems to be his sincere desire for each student to succeed in what may be the most critical goal of the course; "learning to think for yourself or others will think for you" and remember "it isn't men who make history but history who makes men." The only minor drawback is that without some prior knowledge, and/or willingness to go beyond the course; the quizzes can be a little daunting. However, there is plenty of room for error built in and most importantly; his assistant, Tatiana, does a superb job of monitoring the forums and quickly provides feedback and direction to questions. Hopefully, Professor Alex appreciates all the hard word she does to make this the great lecture series that it is. Again, this is maybe the best class I've taken on any platform. Hopefully, Coursera can "coerce" Professor Alexander into other classes in the future.
