The information seems pretty straight forward so far. I don't feel like I've learned anything new or groundbreaking yet. However, I didn't know much about style guides so this information will be quite useful.

Since I am training myself to become a professional proofreader, it was exceptionally clear, informative, detailed, and yet concise.

Definitely a beginner level course, but still a great overview. I proofread daily in my job yet I was able to find some pearls of wisdom in the course to take with me!
