The instructor, JASON HALL, had a fluent, practical, hands-on and knowledgeable style of involving the partipants directly with the software. This was vastly superior to laboriously going thru the course material linearly page after page. We didn't doze off and he answered questions and immediately dealt with individual issues in working through the residential housing project example. I would take another class from Jason Hall.

Re: Break Times - could be shorter, especially considering the day/course ended an hour and a half early. For the price and amount of time scheduled for the day, a lot more could be learned/taught/included

It was hard to see the instructors screen. It was a projector that was turned toward a white board.
