We are lost in front of the numerous courses. This course refers to a lecture course, not a meal course. As our time is limited, we cannot consume all contents available.

I like this idea of using others’ reviews as part of my decision making criteria. To develop it even further, I would trust a review from someone I know personally or professionally. My prior knowledge of this person’s intellectual capability and subject expertise in that area will be useful for me to develop a pretty accurate picture if his/her review is relevant or helpful to me.
