The sections were very much on the spot. Each word is very carefully selected and missing one word or part of a sentence, the information is less beneficary to the reader, One needs to listen to the section several times to allow absorption of all the info and the charts, tabs. The download of the material at the end of the course allows reading the sections again at any time. Very good.
