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.
