The course videos run too fast for me to grasp anything or to be able to write anything down.
This is a very good course if you have a bit of experience.
Rails is still hot in the start-up community and Hartl's tutorial is one of the best ways to learn this framework DIY style. This course however is not based on Hartl's latest teachings since Rails has moved on from 3.1 to 3.2. Just Google the course author's name and you will see what I mean. On top of that I haven't seen him make an appearance in the course's message boards once since the course was posted to Udemy. One other thing, the videos have a tendency to break also. If I could get my money back I would. In brief: If you want to learn Rails go to Michael's website and learn there for free. I'll never buy anything branded by Pearson again.
