It is a nice course but i dont think that the lecturers know what they are talking about

ITEps Meppel review
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The teachers/ lectures are all really nice, but I get the feeling that there are quite a lot of them that don't really know what they are doing. Since I get the feeling that they don't really know what to do, the lessons are quite messy, and there have been quite a few times where there was something planned but they decided to do something else, which is very annoying.
