This was a great course. I would highly recommend it to anyone who (like me) comes from a C/C++ background and wants to get up to speed in Java.

Really enjoyed the class and the instructor. I was worried at first about it being a live online class, but the format was great. I could sit in my office and if something was going wrong the instructor could access our computer and walk us through. GREAT CLASS, GREAT INSTRUCTOR!!! Would definitely recommend.

Debbie Evans, West Coast Florida Enterprises

Great Class. Gave me a better understanding of the logic in writing SQL and the tools to write SQL correctly. It was nice to be able to take the class from home in a quiet atmosphere.
