    Camila Vicens [[]] I LOVE IT!! This is amazing, I never thought I was going to be able to find a course. I will try to finish it this summer... I mean the fact that I am doing it in summer just proves how fun it is. I take notes personally on a google doc and summarize each section to review, which leads me to the one thing I think this course is missing, routine checks. I think especially when learning something new you have to have constant exams and I wish the website included those instead of just giving us a page to print out and not providing the answers. Overall I LOVE THIS COURSE... I have recommended it to many friends although most don't like to do extra work ;) Please keep this wonderful website alive and I would like to thank all of you who work to keep this website running, it is truly amazing!! 2016-06-07 01:06:32
