Customer Review

The course will help you gain an understanding of the critical importance of user interface design. The course provides complete coverage of the 1D0–621 exam objectives and provides knowledge and skills user-centered web design, user interface design principles, color, typography, layout, and wireframing, and a lot more.

The User Interface Designer Course gave me an even better insight into Web Design and User Experience that I didn't know before. The course used different learning techniques (Videos, Reading, Flashcards, Quizzes, etc.). My favorite part of the tool was having "pop-quizzes" at the end of each learning subject to make sure I understood what was just read. I would rate this course 5 out of 5 stars.
