Jason Hall is fantastic and I look forward to taking another course with him. My last experience at New Era was not great; the instructor did not meet our expectations and the computers were not working when we arrived. But Jason made the day fly by and I felt like I learned not only the set curriculum but gained lots of additional presentation skills.

There were only 4 students so it went fast and we finished early. Personally I would have liked to spend more time practicing. Perhaps some reference to the book and if there were any practice exercises in there that we could use to gain more experience with Visio.
