There is a lot of really useful and applicable information in this course that can be used in real life... but there is also a lot of stuff that is repeated from previous years and things that likely won't be used.
I believe Sales is what most people hate about Marketing, which gives it a bad name overall. Unfortunately it is a necessary part of Marketing. This course wasn't too hard. The assignments were pretty stimulating and allow you to show your creative side if you have one.
The course was fairly good overall. Not so challenging that you will lose sleep over it, but not so easy you'll get bored.
