This course exceeded my expectations. Information was well organized and well presented. The instructor was very responsive to emailed questions and provided valuable feedback.

This on-demand format allowed me to replay the taping demonstrations, so that I could re-watch the video and pause it so that I could use it as a guide while doing the taping assignment.
