The areas and depth covered in this course are very helpful. Although some of them were paced faster, but it does serve as a reference in the future. Thank you so much.
Nancy is a great leader talent and I learned a lot from her just from these courses. I cannot imagine how wonderful it would be to work with her. Wonderful!!

Excellent content! The mock interviews could've been analysed more thoroughly though. And a better mechanism to force students to do their own mock interviews will highly improve the value students get from the course, while making it harder to finish.

I think the interviews could be a bit more solid. All the assignments are fun and very useful, but maybe the mock interview with peers needs a slack or social group to connect and practice interviews. Other than that, it is a must-course.

It is good, but there are places it could be better.
- The overview of the types of interview questions that PM will get in an interview
- The practice on the Behavioral Questions
-The mock practice interviews with Bob and Jenny
-The interview with Sandy Clark
Where it could be better:
- In week 1 there is a mention of an app/website to practice interview questions, but there is no link to it and no access to it on the AWIT website. Recommendation would be to partner with another site that already does it like PM Exercises and like maybe AWIT members can get an upgraded membership to the PM Interview questions for a period of time.
-The frameworks for Product Design and Strategy were hard to follow. I found using frameworks found on YouTube and other sites to be more helpful.
-The assignments in week 3 could be stronger. Being able to practice interview questions is really important. Maybe instead of trying to find someone else taking the course to do a 45 min interview with, have learners submit a flipgrid video answering 3-4 questions and a rubric for review.
I am still glad I took the course and am excited to get an interview and use the materials covered.
Having done the other three courses in the specialization I found a few assignment repetitive - for example the product design. The interview components were very useful. It would have been nice to have a kit of all the templates/techniques all in one place and this would be the course for that. The course was challenging and informative.

very helpful tips on the interview process. just was not comfortable finding a fellow course attendee to do mock interviews with, so opted for a non stranger instead.

These are very basic HR questions and didn't really pertain to only product management. My impression is if you don't know someone you have no chance of getting a PM job, at least according to Nancy.
