DP9 Top10: Learned a lot in a short amount of time
Some videos need a double-time playback button as they plod a bit or are too in detail for things I don't find necessary. Others assume knowledge of a feature when you may have skipped through to a specific video and have no way of knowing which video you view to understand a concept that is crucial to understanding the subject you're watching. This video series was quick, pleasant voice, etc. Actually watched 9 out of the 10 segments, even though only 5 or 6 pertained to me.
