Trying to pick my free course. I've got training in Semitics/ANE, as well as Reformation and American Religious history. Very interested in Genesis and history of interpretation. I'm also trying to maximize my value by picking a longer, more expensive course. I'm leaning strongly towards this one, https://www.logos.com/product/130781/mobile-ed-bi352-history-of-biblical-interpretation-ii-seventeenth-century-through-the-present 

However, I suspect it won't utilize/demonstrate as many Logos resources as, say, one of Walton's or Heiser's on Genesis or exegesis. 

Thoughts?

Do you have Waltke's on Old Testament Theology? Excellent course! I TA'ed for him when he taught a version of it at Regent, and it's the one that his book An Old Testament Theology is based on. I know it's not on Genesis or exegesis specifically. But it's good bang for your 0 bucks.

I like the GK101: Biblical Greek. It is a bit pricey and, for me, I felt the value of understanding the text on a more native level would be the most beneficial for me to start (Hebrew would be my second pick)

Have you opened the plan for these in the courses tool. You can do so without owning them and see list of resources used and how many times they are referred to and whether you own the resources or not.

I ended up getting https://www.logos.com/product/136624/mobile-ed-ch201-historical-theology-the-patristic-period  for my free course as it covered an interesting mix of topics.But I also grabbed the 'BI352 History of Biblical Interpretation II: Seventeenth Century through the Present' as one of the bonus 2 courses for $99 deal ( https://www.logos.com/bonus-courses )

How useful are these if you only own a handful of the resources?

I can only speak to GK101, but the critical things are included. Many of the supplemental reading recommendations are unavailable to me, but it has not hindered me whatsoever

To me, this would be like taking a seminary course and skipping the collateral reading—or at least a portion of it. Stick out tongue

I would think the course would still have much of its value. The quizzes seem to be based on the video lectures with no questions from the readings.

For exegetical courses, the outside reading could provide contrary viewpoints.
