Attended Fundamentals of Use Case Modelling course by Trividh Patel, CBAP. Concepts taught were made simple. He effortlessly manages to break down a complex idea into something that is very clear and easy to understand. Easy examples given during the course helped me gain a more solid comprehension of the topic. In short, a great teacher.

The basics of use case writing were clearly explained.

JD Davis


Good content however I have difficulty understanding the instructor and this unfortunately detracts from otherwise relevant content.

Instructor response

I would advise you to re-attend whole course. With more exposure to different accent I am sure you would find this course immensely useful.

Great guidance. Highly recommend.

Amy Schellenberg


Very good so far.

Jonathan Rabideau


I didn't realize exactly what went into a Use case and this laid it out well.

He was thorough but provided a good amount of information at a time. I liked that he was constantly, after each session, referring back and building upon the Use Case outline. The repetition help my recall.

His accent is a bit tough to get through. This forced me to have to listen at 1.0 speed. Since the course length wasn't super long, it wasn't a big issue. This was only a half-star deduction. What I wanted and never got was the visual representation of the use case in diagram form. <- second half-star deduction. I did purchase the second, advanced use case course... maybe diagrams are in there. I will let you know.

I would purchase this again. Worth the investment.

Please edit to remove the misuse of some words that do not fit. For instance "knows". That would be a personification which is not appropriate in a factual lesson. Also "shape" I think you meant boundaries and application.

Andrea Uhl


I sometimes have trouble understanding the accent of the presenter.

Mark Odumu


I am having one of the best new experiences in studying this course. I had a craving for it and its just simply what I anticipated. Instructors explanations are on point. Good work. Will encourage more friends to look this way.

Sushil Jhamnani



The presentation and delivery of content made the course very easy to understand.

I always wanted to understand how to write Use Cases, and your course made it seem simple.

I am glad that I attended the course. Will look forward for more topics.
