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.
