The class was a good size to encourage questions and discussion. The instructor was very good at assessing the knowledge and experience of the class and shaped the instruction accordingly (the other value of a relatively small class). I much prefer these full one day intensive courses to 12 weeks of 2 hours a night every Wednesday...
