I think this is a good course for a beginner at Mac OS X. I would have liked perhaps a bit more advanced, but for a beginner, this is a super course that is well explained.

Good overview of OSX Mavericks essentials.
Lots of detail on included applications and utilities within the Mavericks operating system.
The course moves along at a refreshing pace and topics covered should be of interest to all people who wish to know more about and do more with the Mavericks operating system.

Very good. My only suggestions would be to include interactive training with audible/visible indications of correct or incorrect answers for some of the most important topics you covered in the course.
