The basic material presented appears accurate, but the overuse of Bold font is distracting, as are several glaring examples of grammatical and spelling errors.  Additionally, many of the links to additional material are broken.  This material could be used to assist one preparing lectures on the subjects, but is really unusable without significant editing.
