The Sections that one can learn in this Course are above Expectation. The learned Acquisitions will certainly bring you to another different Level of Solidworks. you will learn the right Way to think about the encountered Problems and you will see them from another different and easier Perspective. after finishing the Course you will have more confidence in your obtained abilities and that will lead you to achieve more goals in the Future. I encourage you to take this course and after finishing it, I am sure that you will be more than satisfied about it.

IIn genuine honesty, this is a truly great course. One can finish it in two weeks if he has some background. I was always intimidated by Solidworks despite being a Mechanical Engineer on paper. In fact as a Master's Student working as a TA, at one point I was asked to teach a course in Solidworks and had to back out. But, this course made it quite easy for me to grasp everything. Hopefully, I will get the certification soon. I like it because it is extremely lucid, succinct and complete. If it had few optional difficult exercises it would become an absolute source of 'Nirvana' for the students.

Hi, I'm a SolidWorks user who picked up the skills through the hard way, with aids from youtube videos and guidance from seniors who are good at it. This series of lectures gave me a thorough insight into SolidWorks and helped me to identified some of the better drawing techniques and technical problems which I had in the past. In a nutshell, I highly recommend this course to individuals who really wanna pick up this skills. The lecturer organised his materials well. He is also friendly and responds to post in discussion board quickly. Definitely 5 stars.
