This class was a great way to gain the knowledge I needed for my current job.

This class helped me a lot and I will be taking more as needed. I no longer need to look elsewhere for a place to learn.

The classroom was very comfortable and I did not feel rushed. I will recommend this class to colleagues. The manual and sample databases are great and they help reinforce what you learn. They will be a nice reference tool in the future as I start to use Access. I now have a better understanding of Access basics and feel comfortable moving forward to the next class.

The instructor was very knowledgeable in Python and pre-sorted the material in a very fun way. The extra examples he provided were great - it went beyond what you would have found in any book.
