The small classroom environment made me feel comfortable enough to ask lots of questions. The labs and examples were clear and good hands on experience. I like the fact that I got to save my lab work and take it home with me.

Hands on exercises were much better than Microsoft's course. Made me think and take my time rather than following each step in MS courses.

I thought the class was very organized and well taught. I really enjoyed the labs and the hands on computer work. I liked the fact that we all had our own computers.
