The lessons are beneficial to me as it is easier to follow and I can practice it immediately with understanding. In my 10 years as oil and gas Technical Writer, the lessons here sharpen my skill and understanding.

It was great, I learned what mistakes I was making while writing technical documentation and the proper way to do it, plus some really helpful tips.

Overall, well constructed and easy to understand. Helpful in identifying ways that writing can become unclear or clunky. The flowchart lesson and text as table were harder for me to understand and could have used some more examples and complex info to help in real-world settings. There were also some confusing exercise examples and solutions, specifically in "Eliminate Negative Writing, " the solution for #2 didn't make any sense to me. I hold a 4-year English degree, so many of these concepts were not new but were a helpful refresher.

- Video playback at 720p struggled, where in other videos on uDemy this was not an issue, had to watch at 480p to get continous playback ability. - Graphics/Material presentation was only average quality. - Lots of examples, but some areas lacked depth in explanations as to *why* to do something -- ie. i'd like to know reasoning why it is "better". - Reasonably quick course, would be nicer if it were a bit longer with more depth in explanations, and possibly a few more quiz questions at the end of each chapter. - At full price ($54.95 AUD) i dont think it's worth that much, unfortunatly thats what was paid as the promotions don't apply to this specifc course for some reason.
