I find the content to be engaging and realistically helpful. I do appreciate when the instructor gives additional content options for those that need to study quickly versus have more time on their hands. I would appreciate more guidance thus far on how to best utilize the videos in this course specifically, as some of the content seems less relevant than others; this most likely is not the case, but as a first time testtaker and general beginner, making those judgement calls myself when the instructor does not offer them readily is difficult. For example, I don't feel like it's as important to practice with the ETS calculator or get very good at "mental math", but I am most likely wrong about this and may find that out the hard way simply because it isn't stressed as an important point, and moreso casually mentioned.
