The Course was too fast. It was supposed to be Quickbooks level 1 and we were handed a manual. During the course we only covered half or even less from that manual. The Instructor promised to e-mail the students the rest of insturctions for the course within the week. I have received nothing up until today. I did not get what I was really looking for. Sorry to say that, but I feel it was not worth the time and money I spent.

I took Quick Books 1 and 2 and came away with a lot of new information. I really like the course book that was given to me. I will be referring to this book when I have a question. My instructor was knowledgeable, willing to answer my numerous questions and very personable.

the instructor was very good. The one topic that I wanted to learn the most the computer was not set up properly so we could not go thru it which was very dissappointing. It is alot of info for one day but that is the way these courses are so it was not a shock.

The course was helpful, and the reading materials were extremely helpful. However, the structure of the course (in terms of pace, etc.) were not reasonable. For example, we spent almost half of the first day's class only going through Overview of the Microsoft Access application and usage of tables, even though they were almost all known information to all the students in the class. We also spent a lot of time reading through all the examples and following step by step process, instead of the Instructor guiding the class through the steps. This was time consuming, as this was something we could do at our own time. The Instructor needs to be more prepared for the class, and make it more interactive and lead the class through the steps, rather than sit along with us and read the steps to complete the examples.

Do not recommend this course with this vendor. Very poor delivery by instructor and he was not knowledgeable or confidence-inspiring or engaging at all. Complete waste of time.

-in this particular session, there was a student whom was placed in our class instead of 2007 excel. the student was angry about this and therefore communicated that to the instructor. the instructor therefore taught our class 2003 and also taught 2007 to her. I found this distracting and felt that the rest of us lost the attention that we should have received for the teacher to teach us 2003.

We did not go thoruhg all the chapters, fell behind. Some - with good reason - was due to asking allot of question - but mostly too much talking. A few errors on the course notes.
