Finding Faults is Hard
It’s hard to find fault with Mark’s Level 3 course. I knew this one was going to be more difficult than the first two I took – there are just so many things that can go wrong! In my journey so far I have been working on non-running eBay movements so I was anxious to see what this course would add to what I’ve already learned in levels 1 and 2. When it came to the end, I didn’t do great on my assessment and didn’t earn my certificate so I took the course a second time. The second time I took written notes and passed the assessment the second time with a 95.24%. I didn’t give this course five stars for a couple of (stupid) reasons: I thought out of focus and refocus footage could have been edited out. I also thought there was material repeated that had been shown previously that didn’t add value: I’ve seen the top balance jewel removed, cleaned and oiled several times and don’t feel that showing the same sequence for the bottom jewel adds anything. That aside, Mark is a fantastic presenter! He does fill his explanations with filler pauses like: “um” or “ah” that are so often the mark of inexperienced speakers. This was the best of the three I’ve taken so far.
