Very good course, great structure, really easy to follow. Have gone back and forth many times to check on some issues arising on my site. Also very handy to see what kind of plugins are available to serve different purposes.

Excellent feel good fit for my I study and install accounting software. However wow a lot of stuff covered here. For me great. For a lot of others beginners may be a little over whelming. Again for me extremely helpful. I study software in chunks.
