The course was short but provided very good information that is useful in practice, even though a lot is common knowledge, it is still beneficial because over time it is common to forget some information on all subjects if your not using it on a regular or daily basis. I have taken several courses prepared and presented by Mark Peterson, P.E. and I enjoy his courses besides learning from each one. Thank you, Mark. and Red Vector.
