Extremely poor text and accompanying website. Explains some thin
Extremely poor text and accompanying website. Explains some things three times over, then tests you on material not covered. You cannot control the sound on the videos. You have to navigate a very complicated and non-intuitive interface to access very basic material instructing you about computers. In other words, if you can navigate their website, you already know more than what the book and website have to offer.
