Even if you're a navigate producer is important to be up to date with latest techlogies, and sometimes clarify small doubt regardin basic theory related to your operative system and computer in general. this course take you deep and quickly inside all the general rules to follow in order to have the settings done properly. I would like to suggest to the master driving the course, to speak a little bit slower, as many users are not mother tougue. Maybe increase the lenght of the single video could potentially help some users to understand better the foundamental explained. however this is fantastic and very useful course for beginners but also for experts, that allows to remind all the factor can potentially influence the workflow of any computer user.
