    The challenging questions posed in this project helped me apply and improve my coding and analytical skills. These skills might be applied to many other real-life projects. I learned and enjoyed a great deal. It's a great project. Thanks!

    Very straight forward. Highlighted key methods that are being learned. Challenging, but in a good way that made you want to get the code right. Would maybe like to see a couple more questions on there to polish somr other skills we covered
