FreeCAD Badge Feedback

What were the videos that you studied to learn FreeCAD? Please include links. Besides FreeCAD 101 Lesson 1, 2, 3a and 3b videos, I read some bits in the FreeCAD Documentation, and watched a couple random YouTube videos (sorry, I don't have the links, I didn't see these questions until much later.)

Was Lesson 3A and 3B from FreeCAD 101 sufficient? How could we improve the lessons so you can get the FreeCAD Badge faster? It was sufficient. FreeCAD 101 would be improved if it had a note about using the old version of FreeCAD at the beginning, so I didn't have to reinstall or unlearn that interface. Maybe put lesson 3A and 3B and the badge before lessons 1 & 2?

How long did it take you to install FreeCAD 16? About 5 minutes, including overwriting FreeCAD 19. If I was still new to using a Mac, I could have been tripped up by the GitHub download page (not newbie friendly what files are needed for each OS, OSE wiki uses potentially misleading OS specific term "AppImage" on link) or the Mac trying to block the unverified developer app.

How long did it take you to learn the skill to perform the Feature-on-a-Feature Exercise? Due to starting from the top of the FreeCAD 101 page, combined with my meandering learning style, it probably was 4 hours before I did the exercise, but it could have been 30 mins. I have previous experience with CAD software.
