Some inconsistencies and confusing descriptions.

Some inconsistencies or confusing description for CAV, SDV and Av's , could benefit from using expert developed terms (e.g BSI Flex 1890) , some elements had general comments that jumped across concepts , requiring me to read it several times to understand the flow.

Outdated information on a domain sseeing high speed evolution

Good foundation, but way too conservative views. If you operate by the scenarios presented in this course, you are in for some big surprises the next few years.
