Up to date and thorough book.
Course was well laid out with review materials. Exam provided so you could work on it prior to taking it officially.
Really liked the chapter reviewing statistics.
Would have been helpful to have a chapter that outlined several of the different wearable technology products, what they can do, what is beneficial and what is not very helpful. This would probably have to be updated regularly but would be a nice addition to the course.
