Do I need a computer to complete this course?
While having a computer is definitely helpful, it is not required to complete this course. The curriculum focuses on fundamental concepts and theory, so a computer is not a necessity to complete the course. We found that many students can go to a local library to use a computer or have a friend with a computer they can use.
