Social Proof – Reviews of International Students & Professionals about this course:

Let us now take a look at both positive and negative feedback that our users and professionals have given about this course. By looking at the comments given by such people, it can get easy for other users to decide whether to take this course or not.

Positive feedback:

  • The whole course is amazing and especially the videos and the reading material was very helpful and easy to understand. I have managed to learn a lot from the course. (Abolghassem/5 stars).
  • I would say that this course is suitable for all kinds of people. Whether you are a beginner or a graduate like me, anyone willing to learn from this course can fully benefit from this course like I did. (Zied Y/5 stars).
  • I graduated 6 years ago and started to realize that my understanding regarding mechanical engineering is getting weak so I decided to take this course and would say that this was an amazing experience for me to bring back the entire concepts to my mind. (Vijay N/5 stars).
  • The approach of the course is very interactive. Means the way that the course has been set by the instructor makes all the concepts to be cleared very easily. Which term should be explained first and which in the end is arranged in an efficient way. This prevents a learner from getting lost in the course. (George Shelby/5 star).
  • How to do basic calculation is a concept that has been explained in this course so beautifully. I have enjoyed this course so much and my concept regarding basic calculation has only be cleared by this course. (Yash Mehta/5 star).
  • The course has so many challenging concepts but no worries even these challenging concepts can easily be understood by any student as the information shared in this course regarding every concept is quite enough to make a student understand it easily. (Sandra Kelly/5 star).
  • Those who are starting their career in this field should definitely take this course as this course has a lot of information regarding their field. Every important as well as minor term is discussed very clearly in the course. The course has different section that makes it easy to watch. (LH/ 5 star).
  • At the end there are many quizzes given for the students to solve. The main purpose of these quizzes is to help the learner assess himself as to how much he has understood the course. For that to happen a little difficult quizzes should be given. But instead very easy to solve quizzes have been given. (Miranda AK/5 star).

Negative feedback:

  • One problem that I found is that no doubt the course has a lot of information, but the information is not very well explained. It looks like just a pile of information has been dumped on the student and no one is there to help them understand it. (Ghazi Rehman/3 star)
