I personally found this to be a really enjoyable course with a level of practicality. You learn how to conduct research and the research process. There are many assignments but they aren't time consuming nor difficult. The information you learn will be a stepping stone to the higher level courses. Overall, great course.

I WOULD recommend this course to others.
