[top] Student Testimonials

It has been an excellent class so far. Very challenging as expected. The instructor has been amazing in his ability to effectively teach individuals with very diverse skill levels so they were able to meet their learning goals, work at their own pace, yet go through the entire content. His explanations are very clear. I am really enjoying the Yamba example as it goes step by step through the topics in a logical manner. A great jumpstart!
