A bit redundant in some areas

A bit redundant in some areas.
Narrative often disjointed and rambling or subjective
By (Architect) on Dec, 22, 2019
Narrative often disjointed and rambling or subjective. Number of the internet links are outdated or don't work. "Age Friendly Cities; Life Expectancy Part 2" was non-functional.
Probably the worst red vector course I've taken
By (Engineer) on Jan, 23, 2020
Probably the worst red vector course I've taken. Transcribed presentations to text are an awful way to present material. Pay the instructor to put the material in an easy to read form with photos, charts, graphs, etc.
