    What's the difference between the Master Course and the Manual?


    The Manual contains the same amazing lessons, quizzes and assignment prompts as our Product Design Master Course but does not include 1:1 private instruction, assignment feedback. career guidance or certificate of completion. The manual is self-directed, on-demand content while the master course is more of a bootcamp-style, instructor lead experience.
