Coursera Speciality : Cyber Security, reviews?

I'm wondering if anyone has taken the Coursera course on Cybersecurity and if so if they thought it was worth it:

I'm just starting my studies and if it's more beginner information I'm happy to learn anything but reviews would be awesome :D

Why do courses in a Specialization overlap?

If Coursera is supposed to be friendly to working professionals, wouldn't it be best that courses in a Specialization are sequential rather than overlapping?

An example is the Cybersecurity Specialization. The four courses overlap one another between 1 and 6 weeks, ending a couple weeks before the capstone project.

Is it worth paying for a specialization certificate through Coursera?

Here's the link:

I'm just not sure if an HR rep or hiring manager would take the certificate seriously enough to warrant spending $250 on it. The courses can be taken for free but you don't get the cert that way.
