The level of the course is really deep and helpful.
It was great to have a course like this which I felt was more advanced than the usual. I'll be going over the material several more times to make sure I got it all.
Johannes is a great tutor that knows well how to explain the concepts in an approachable manner. Even later in the course, he was able to keep hinting at things that were thought in the course so it would remain in the back of your mind. Excellent instructor.
