If you can answer yes to all three of the following questions, the Silver level course is right for you:
Don’t need a structured study plan with access to instructor and live instruction, prefer to do it on your own?
Do you want video instruction? Try the problems first on your own, check your work, then go and watch the video?
You were a strong student and feel pretty confident but want a comprehensive review?
