Please check the quality of the English in the slides, and also in the quiz questions. Many quiz questions were difficult to understand because of the English.

The most in-depth course I have taken on Coursera by far. Do not let the short amount of weeks fool you, there is a huge amount of information in the slides and the start-up simulator will keep you busy far beyond finishing the course.
