This course is well-rounded, comprehensive, and taught by a great teacher. I was seeking a revision of the basics as I recently graduated and have entered the job market. To my surprise, this course offered much more than I knew about engineering drawing and provided a full perspective of how things are done in the industry. The challenging exercises and webinars are an added bonus. Definitely recommended to students, teachers, and engineers!

I am a Salesman and have been in the BPO industry for quite sometime, I have never been to the Engineering Field up until I got hired by Rigid Technologies Co., Ltd. in Thailand. After searching a lot of guides and reviews about this field, I finally encounter GD&T Basics. Engineering Drawing Basics is what I really needed and looking forward for more learnings from this company. I maybe lucky because everytime I have a question, I got answers in timely manner (I am in Thailand more or less 12 hours ahead of USA) but they can reply immediatly. The topics, were clearly explained in the videos, the pdf files summarizes the lesson in each chapter, Brandon explains very well to me about my questions and support is always available.

Overall the material was informative. Not overly challenging and very relevant to the referenced ASME / Industry standard. My only concern: As I progressed to the latter courses, there were place holders for intended new materials or materials that had not been completely developed. As I moved on to the remaining materials and had taken the final exam, the course concluded and now it appears that I do not have access to the undeveloped pending materials, which I was looking forward to reviewing. the 5 star rating is based on the potential relevant to the present completeness of the entire course.
