    After a few years of using CSS as one of my main professional tools, this course was more about consolidating knowledge acquired around scattered sources and while working on various projects. It fulfilled this purpose well, and I managed to learn a few extra bits of skill. This would be a godsend for beginners, and I still recommend it for accomplished designers.

    As someone teaching themselves CSS, HTML and javascript, I find these courses invaluable. Although I was already fairly familiar with much of what the course covered, the bits I did learn were so practical that I groaned when I realized how much simpler it would have made my styelsheets if I had been aware of them previously. If you are teaching yourself CSS I would highly recommend this course, if you are anything like me you may have totally neglected learning some very simple and practical things that you would otherwise not even be aware of.
