This course started from the very beginning and provided a rock solid foundation on the basics, which was really great. Plus he repeated core concepts and functions which was really helpful for new learners. Instead of mentioning it once and expecting the audience to just know that from now on, he repeated some of the main functions and concepts in other lessons, which I found very helpful.
