4.55 out of 5

Masters & Layouts was pretty important but didn't get to practice much as it was towards the end. I will have to likely review this section on my own again. I would also suggest not having Level 1 and Level 2 a day apart. Would give me time to practice and build on what I learned from Level 1 before taking Level 2.
