    Richard Giltner United States of America The introductory and DC portion of the course was excellent and well explained. The AC portion, however, made many assumptions about mathematics and measuring devices that made much additional study outside the course necessary in order to understand many of the points made. The tests at the end, however, indicated that the outside study was not really necessary and only a basic understanding of principles was required. Overall, the course did teach what its objectives stated, was reasonably clear in the statements made, but the examples and explanations in the AC section were very confusing. I did enjoy the course and found it very helpful as a review of electrical principles. Thank you. 2015-05-18 20:05:28
