TOP REVIEWS FROM THE EVOLVING UNIVERSE
a novel perspective on the subject by a master of the subject -- the course itself needs more attention though; transcripts are messy and tests have typos
Requires some knowledge of physics to do calculations. Concepts are well explained (with examples and graphics) so that anyone can understand the material otherwise.
Excellent course for beginners. just one issue: the audio is very soft and is often hard to hear even in full volume. it would be appreciated if the audio could be increased a bit
Wonderful course! A brief introduction to cosmology but with plenty of material to cover. I recommend researching for papers additionally to the material, but you'll need more time than 4 weeks.
