At some point, the Udemy system will ask you for a review about this course. Please understand that it is Udemy asking and not me (Chris Parker, your instructor). I do not agree with asking for a review so early (it's out of my control) in the course and ask that if you're not ready to give a review, please do so only when you're ready. I appreciate all feedback and use it to improve my courses.
I Hope your enjoying the course thus far. Please contact me anytime for additional questions/support. I'm here to help you achieve your learning goals and looking forward to your success.
