I just wanted you to know that I thought the GCP course was good. The right level and I liked the fact you could read more if you wanted to e.g. articles.

I certainly enjoyed using the course and I thought it was easy to use overall. I thought the interactive part of the course and a little tests at the end of each section were especially useful.

"I found the system easy to use and the navigation through various screens was easy too. Varying the way information was accessed and the way the quizzes were done made it more interesting than if it was all the same throughout"
