This course taught me so much about the science of koi
keeping; something I had always wanted to understand better. It was
difficult, long, and sometimes had twists that enticed me to think
creatively. The clue of (Boo) was very cute now that I understand it... Well
Awesome course. I thought I knew a lot about water quality
but still had problems with some areas. Lots of information!
Great course! As a long time amateur Koi keeper I had gotten lazy and was dependent on experience and luck. Syd helped me through some of the more complicated materials. I am now keeping a journal and feel much more poised to go forward.
Lots of math, but I guess that is expected in pond since there is a lot of calculations needed to ensure you are adding the appropriate medicines and chemicals to pond. So it took me longer in this module as I am not a math wizard, but writer does help you along.
This course really made me think and helped me learn a lot. I also had to do some research to come up with some of the answers on the test. It helped me learn even more, and I ran across even more information that wasn't on the test. The math portion was tough for me, but not impossible. Now that I get it, I find myself testing my understanding by coming up with scenarios and trying out the math formulas to check my results. I highly recommend this course to anyone with a pond. Water quality is the key to success.
Hi Syd, I am impressed by your expertise and the amount of time you spend customizing your answers to your students. Your last comments were very interesting, I save them preciously in my archives and will share them during a future presentation to the San Francisco Bay Area Koi Club if it's OK with you. Thanks a lot!
This was an intensive course that was well worth the time, you can not rush through this section as water quality is key to having a healthy pond for the koi. There is a lot of math involved so you may have to review several times before getting it right, but the instructor is helpful and quick to respond.
