I wish I would have spent my college tuition on Steve’s courses instead.” -Adam O#3 The actual instructor answers ALL QUESTIONS. The unfortunate truth is that on Udemy most instructors do not answer questions at all even though Udemy provides a spot in the course for that. How disappointing. Other instructors have a “Team” that is really a low cost outsource provider who answers questions and provides general 1 or 2 sentence answers, if that. What a rip off. The instructor in this course answers all questions with detailed responses and provides supplemental links and resources to support the answer. Many students like to go though and read the Q&A and consider it like a blog that really aids learning on its own.”Steve has never disappointed me! I love all his courses.
