The instructor was great and followed the curriculum as per Adobe's book but Dreamweaver is a beast of a software with a high learning curve. I found that this course just scratched the surface and taught me the basics and that I would need more practice and learning to create a simple website with ease. This is not a criticism of the course really but I felt I would personally benefit from a slightly slower pace and an extra day. I didn't know that at the time as I seemed to follow the instructor's instructions well and it seemed to make sense in the classroom but once I got home I felt a little stuck!
