    during the course of

    How legitimate is the expression "during the course of"? I hear it often, but I think it's redundant; "during" usually suffices, and one can also say "in the course of" instead of "during the course of."

    Thanks.

    Yes. Use "in the course of" or "during". "during the course of" is not a correct collocation to me.
