Completion time will vary as students will be performing homework and other exercises during the course. Watching and performing the lessons for ~ 10hr/wk may take about 6 weeks to complete to ensure that you understand the material.

How should I take this course?

First, I recommend that you take a course from the course package and simply watch it from start to finish. Don't try to do the demo work or feverishly take notes. Just watch, listen, learn, and get the 10,000ft view of what we're working on.

I've seen people try to "do" at the same time that they are trying to learn new material, and it tends to reduce understanding and applied knowledge.

Second, after you watch the course, go back a second time and perform the exercises. This time, watch the course module, pause when we get to the lesson work. Try to complete the lesson without the video. This will give you more of those "ah-ha" moments of success!  You can always click the play button if you get stuck.
