Very professionally presented. The instructeur really knew his stuff.

The instructor knew her stuff but we worked on only one lame example. Granted time was the culprit, she could have provided or suggested more exercises to practice later on. The only way to learn a software is to practice the software by doing exercises, that part was really disappointing.

I really enjoyed taking the Excel Beginners course. The course objective were all met and the teacher was fabulous. I was very much looking forward to taking the Excel Intermediate course as well. I was put into a class where the teacher spent almost 1 hour preparing what he would be teaching. By first break we had learned one new thing and by lunch we had learned almost nothing. I went to the receptionist who was extremely nice and very helpful. She call the director. Another girl and myself transferred out of the class. I was put into the other intermediate Excel class where I was totally lost. They had already covered a lot of the course objectives so I was basically lost from the beginning and it just kept getting worse as the day progressed. The second day I was so lost I spoke with the teacher and told her I would just sit beside another student and watch because I was holding back the whole class asking questions every 2 minutes. The teacher was very nice but it was too late because they had already learned too much the first morning that I had missed because I was enrolled in the other class. I should be refunded for my course. It was a total waste of time and completely frustrating. I paid a lot of money and the first class I was in, the teacher was more interested in speaking about his personal experiences with Excel, instead of teaching the course objectives. We didn't even receive a sheet with the course objectives. I don't think he had any. He was abrasive with other students. There were only four in the class. It was a very unpleasant experience. It was even more unpleasant to be put into another class where I was totally lost. I am not a slow person. I catch on very quickly, but I felt incompetent being put into a class where I had already missed a whole morning and as the day went on I did nothing but panic trying to keep up and understand what the teacher was doing because I had missed so much and was so far behnind.

The seminar is scheduled over two days with hour long lunches (that go long) and two break (morning and afternoon). With all of that free time, the course still ended quite early each day. This course could definitely be condensed into a four hour morning or afternoon.
