Found layout of cases to be confusing.

Found layout of cases to be confusing. Believe better graphics would have been helpful. Text had many unidentified characters that sometimes made reading illegible

Test material was not fully covered in the course. Presentation and writing style is unclear. Technical glitches, (words written over eachother.) Not always clear wether I was reading a court decision or the author. Need more clarity in principles being taught
