The course was very helpful and the instructor was very knowledgable and made the effort to make sure all class members were understanding the excersizes and were on the same page. My only complaint is that the computers seemed a little worn out. Throughout the day most students in the class ran into some sort of issue with the computer not working the way it should. And during our practice time closer to the end of the day all the computers started crashing.
