Special Considerations and Warnings

This is an overview of WordPress, not a hands-on lab class. You'll get a lot out of this course by listening and taking notes. You may get more out of it if you have a laptop that connects to the internet or you may confuse yourself. It depends on your learning style, only you know that.
