It was more than couple of basic information this is why I have enjoyed it so much, a glimpse from here and there which eventually gave me a big picture of the whole project management thing. The quizzes helped me so much to review the important information.

This course was very well established. It broken key concepts and had some repitition to ensure the information sticks with the learner. It was easy to follow and understand. Adding the quiz after each section also helped reinforce what was just covered.

El curso es demasiado directo, práctico y bueno. Me gustó toda la información que se brinda y la forma tan sencilla y amigable en que se abarca. Solo hubo un ligero error en un cuestionario en la semana 4 que ya reporté, pero fuera de eso todo excelente.

Awesome course which will give a lot of exposure to what project manager is what are his responsibilities. Even if you dont want to be a project manager, I recommend everyone to try this course as there is so much more to it that you can only experience.
